NEW YORK -- The NBA has suspended Grizzlies guard Tony Allen one game without pay for kicking Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul in the face.

Rod Thorn, the NBA's president of basketball operations, announced the penalty Tuesday.

Allen was given a flagrant 2 foul and ejected after his left leg caught Paul's face with 1:51 left in the first quarter of Memphis' 106-102 win over the Clippers on Monday night in Los Angeles.

He will sit out the Grizzlies' next game Wednesday night when Memphis visits Golden State.
