Will Bynum, Jerry Hendon

Will Bynum ejected after punching Tyler Hansbrough in the midsection (VIDEO)


Early in the fourth quarter of the Pacers’ second consecutive blowout win over the Pistons on Saturday, Will Bynum was caught on a screen from Tyler Hansbrough.

Bynum either didn’t appreciate the contact, or the fact that Hansbrough continued to illegally move once the contact was made, and gave him a little shot to the midsection.

The referee was on top of it, and immediately called Bynum for the flagrant-two foul, resulting in an automatic ejection.

The frustration is somewhat understandable, considering how inferior the Pistons are to the Pacers right now, and that they were down 20 in the fourth quarter after losing by 32 in Indiana just the night before. And, Hansbrough isn’t known to be the cleanest of players out there, so it’s possible that over the course of these two games, Bynum had gotten tangled up with him multiple times, and this was just the final straw.

Bynum said it wasn’t intentional afterward, via Brendan Savage of MLive.com:

“It wasn’t (done) intentionally but it kind of happened through the course of the game,” Bynum said in the empty Pistons locker room. “The game was kind of physical. It was during the heat of the moment.

“It was nothing intentional, though.”

That’ll obviously be up to the league to decide, but you can’t punch guys, no matter the circumstances. It’s more than possible that Bynum will be suspended a game for his actions.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
