Livingston, who was upset about a no-call during the game, bumped heads with referee Courtney Kirkland and was ejected.
The league handed Livingston a one-game suspension and the veteran guard took the sentence in stride when discussing it with the media.
“It is what it is” Livingston said, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
“Unfortunate it happened. They got a standard to protect. It shouldn’t have happened at the end of the day. Not one of my proudest moments. Just want to put it behind me. Apologize for it, because it is not really in my character. Emotions of the game, you know, got heated.”
Kirkland has been removed from the officiating rotation for one week for his actions in the incident with Livingston.
