Blazers' Miller has consecutive games streak snapped
PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - Portland point guard Andre Miller saw his NBA-leading streak of 632 consecutive games come to an end Tuesday when he was forced to sit out the Trail Blazers' 106-99 win over the Phoenix Suns.
Miller was serving a one-game suspension for making excessive and unnecessary contact with Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin Sunday when he knocked the rookie to the ground.
The 34-year-old Miller had not missed a game since the 2002-03 season.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Derek Fisher became the new active consecutive games played leader with 444. The all-time NBA record for most successive games played is 1,192 held by A.C. Green, who went from 1986 to 2001 without missing a contest.
