Bloodied by James Harden, Jonas Jerebko held back from Rockets star (video)


James Harden‘s swipe at Jonas Jerebko didn’t look nearly as bad as the result, but the result – a bloodied face for Jerebko – was pretty gruesome.

Even Jerebko acknowledged after the game Harden didn’t intend any harm. Still, in the moment, Jerebko leapt up and took an aggressive step toward Harden before being restrained by teammates.

If it makes Jerebko feel better, the Celtics converted the flagrant free throws and pulled away for a 120-109 win over the Rockets.
