Jared Sullinger with flagrant foul on Brook Lopez, scuffle breaks out

Boston’s Jared Sullinger earned the flagrant foul on this one. That takedown of Brooklyn’s Brook Lopez was worthy of a WWE undercard, and if you do that in an NBA game you get a flagrant foul.

That is followed the usual NBA “fight”/tough guy posturing — Jarrett Jack comes in to say something to Sullinger, Jae Crowder defends Sully, and pretty soon it’s about Jack and Crowder for no reason in particular. Jack and Crowder each got a technical foul for trying to make it about them. From where I sit, the refs got all that right.

The Nets upset the Celtics 100-97, behind 30 points and 13 boards from Lopez.
