Game 6: Rondo gets a flagrant

Posted By Paul Flannery On April 30, 2009 @ 7:47 pm In General | 1 Comment

Late in the first quarter of Game 6, Rajon Rondo [1] got tangled up with Chicago’s Kirk Hinrich [2] and appeared to throw Hinrich into the scorer’s table. Hinrich came back at Rondo with a shove and the two squared off. Rondo was assessed a Flagrant 1 Foul, a huge break for the Celtics [3] because a Flagrant 2 would have resulted in his ejection and could have led to a possible suspension.

Hinrich was assessed a technical foul on the play. It was the culmination of a tightly-called first quarter that saw 15 fouls called.
