Near the end of the third quarter of the Heat’s Monday game against the Celtics, Hassan Whiteside delivered a blindside hit on Kelly Olynyk that rightly got the Miami phenom ejected with a Flagrant 2 foul:

Olynyk didn’t appear hurt on the play, but there’s no getting around that it was a dirty hit and Whiteside absolutely deserved to be tossed. If he gets suspended for it, that won’t be unreasonable, either. It was an obvious cheap shot and not a basketball play at all.
