NBA confirms Flagrant 1 call for Rockets C Dwight Howard


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) The NBA has confirmed that Rockets center Dwight Howard's foul on Andrew Bogut in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals was a Flagrant 1.

This means Howard will not be subject to any further discipline and will not be suspended. 

Howard fouled Bogut with what appeared to be an elbow above the shoulders. Howard is averaging 16.2 points and 13.9 rebounds during the playoffs. He's recorded three consecutive double-doubles.


Rockets not expecting further punishment for Dwight Howard foul


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Rockets coach Kevin McHale doesn't believe center Dwight Howard will see further punishment for his flagrant foul on Andrew Bogut on Monday, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Howard fouled Bogut hard in Game 4 above the shoulders and was given a Flagrant 1.

"He just tried to get off a hold," McHale said. "The second foul always gets called. He swiped his arm back, it's not like he turned on him. It's been that way forever in this league. The second one always gets called."

Howard is averaging 16.2 points and 13.9 rebounds per game in the playoffs and has recorded three consecutive double-doubles.


Lebron James: Cavaliers should keep Tristan Thompson


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Cavaliers forward LeBron James made a pitch for the team to hold onto center Tristan Thompson.

The Cavs passed on the chance to extend Thompson prior to the season, but, after he averaged 8.5 points and 8.0 rebounds this year, James is ready to endorse him for the long term.

"Tristan should probably be a Cavalier for his whole career," James said on Monday, per Cleveland.com. "There's no reason why he shouldn't. This guy is 24 years old. He's played in 340?plus straight games, and he's gotten better every single season. It's almost like, 'What more can you ask out of a guy?'"

Horford received a Flagrant 2 and Dellavedova received a technical foul. 

With the NBA making this decision, Horford will be available for Game 4. The Cavaliers lead the series 3-0. 


Hawks F Al Horford ejected after Flagrant 2 foul


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Hawks forward Al Horford was ejected in the second quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday after committing a Flagrant 2 foul against the Cavaliers' Matthew Dellavedova

Horford, who was leading the Hawks with 14 points and four rebounds, was entangled with Dellavedova when he delivered an elbow to the Cleveland guard's head with 34.3 seconds remaining in the half. 

After the officials reviewed the foul, with Cleveland fans chanting Dellavedova's name, they decided to assess a Flagrant 2 to Horford, which results in an automatic ejection, and a technical foul to Dellavedova.
