  • Udonis Haslem & Dexter Pittman Suspended

    Haslem suspended for Game 6 of Heat-Pacers - Yahoo! Sports

    Dirty plays by both. Glad they got suspended.

    Udonis Haslem insists he meant no harm. The NBA deemed otherwise, and the Miami Heat will be without one of their co-captains when they try to close out the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.

    Haslem was suspended for Game 6 of the Miami-Indiana Eastern Conference semifinal series, a matchup where emotions boiled over in a runaway Heat victory on Tuesday night. The NBA also said Miami reserve center Dexter Pittman will miss three games in response to his flagrant foul against Indiana backup guard Lance Stephenson in the final seconds of Game 5.

    Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough was not suspended, although the league upgraded his foul against Miami's Dwyane Wade to a flagrant-2 on Wednesday - which, if called that way during Game 5, would have brought an automatic ejection. Hansbrough struck Wade in the head, opening a cut over his right eye. Moments later, Haslem committed a flagrant foul against Hansbrough, clearly in response to the play against Wade.

    I'm still kind of surprised Pittman got 3 games because if he and Haslem had switched blows I still don't think Haslem would've gotten more than a game.

      I was surprised too by Pittman getting 3 games and Haslem only 1 game!
