Andrew Bogut slams into James Harden, gets called for flagrant foul (VIDEO)


Dallas Mavericks center Andrew Bogut just recently returned from injury, and he’s already doing Andrew Bogut things, it seems. On Tuesday, Bogut drew a flagrant foul for setting an exceptionally-hard screen on Houston Rockets star James Harden.

It all happened with 5:31 left in the second quarter, with Bogut setting a down screen for Harrison Barnes. As Harden tried to fight through the pick, Bogut appeared to slide himself toward the Rockets guard after setting his feet.

The move knocked Harden to the ground, and he had to lay on the floor a moment before composing himself enough to shoot and make two free throws.

Houston’s MVP candidate then came back just seconds later and hit a 3-pointer on the Mavericks that forced Dallas to call a timeout, and as the teams went to their benches Harden gave Bogut an icy staredown.

No love lost between these Texas rivals, of course. Houston beat Dallas, 123-107.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Hawks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. kneed in the groin while defending 76ers (video)

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
