According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Pistons guard Will Bynum has been suspended one game for his punch to the midsection of Indiana’s Tyler Hansbrough Saturday night.

Judging by the replays it looked as though Bynum was upset from the contact or the fact Hansbrough made the illegal move after that initial contact was made. Or perhaps it was Indiana pretty much having their way with the Pistons all season not to mention Hansbrough isn’t the cleanest player in the League.
Bynum denied that anything was done intentionally (via Brendan Savage of MLive.com)…
“It wasn’t (done) intentionally but it kind of happened through the course of the game,” Bynum said in the empty Pistons locker room. “The game was kind of physical. It was during the heat of the moment.
“It was nothing intentional, though.”
Either way you can’t punch guys even if it wasn’t done intentionally as Bynum states even though it totally was.
