I don't think of IT as a dirty player, but it's hard for me to justify that action using any basketball logic.  It wasn't a whack at the ball... or if it was, he didn't come anywhere close.  I kind of think he was giving the foul to stop the dunk and used too much force, but that won't be much of a case when they review this later.  Or maybe he was down 30 and just took the chance at a cheap shot when it presented itself.  Again, I don't think of IT as that type of guy, but who knows?

I'd expect him to miss some time.

Still a flagrant 2 and probably a 1 game suspension.
Agreed, and that 1 game suspension won't mean anything since he's not playing back to backs.  Their next 2 games are back to back, so he can just serve it on one of those nights.

For all the hand wringing some did on this board over the Celtics .500 stretch the cavs have lost 6 of their last 9.

That lineup couldn't defend a chair before Isaiah. I hope he doesn't wear the blame for how **** they are defensively.

Their problems are far deeper on that end than just point guard.

Don't think it was malicious.

Trying to swipe the ball. He immediately walks over and says to Wiggins "I didn't mean to do that".

Still a flagrant 2 and probably a 1 game suspension.

I don't see him trying to swipe the ball at all, myself.

Agreed.

No play was made on the ball. He needs to be suspended.

No idea what he was thinking. No level of frustration warrants something like that.

Having a bad shooting night. Probably frustration. It happens.

One thing is it looked like IT wasn't happy before the hit.  It started with his arms up in air when team got back on d.  Then 2 picks through traffic.  My only thought is he thought Wiggins was going to put the ball out farther when he drove and he was trying to meet the ball at that point.  No ball arm kept going...
Either way the call is correct and he'll loose a game pay check

He continues to show his immaturity and why it was a great idea to trade this bum.  Celtics need to seriously get rid of that tribute on the 11th

My favorite part is how non-nonchalant the referee tosses him.  He basically watches the video and says to himself "well this is an easy one.. get this guy out of here."

It sounds a little extreme, but if you say so.

I'm not getting into the whole tribute thing again - IT definitely deserves one, but I don't think it should be on Paul's night...

However, it is quite disingenuous to compare that flagrant with IT's

Because Pierce’s was more dangerous?

But in all seriousness, flagrants happen. One of the most celebrated Celtics plays of all time could have easily seriously injured Kurt Rambis. Pierce, KG, Rondo, etc., sometimes committed flagrants, and we’re even blatantly dirty at times. KG broke a teammate’s jaw while with the Twolves.

Do those actions make the guys immature and unworthy of recognition? It’s a silly test.

Please provide the video link on this foul.  Very unfair to compare a picture with a video.

Thanks,

Wow. That, does not look good...

Really?  Nothing about that looked intentional.  Yes, he was frustrated and just swiped randomly, but the play was going so fast at that moment that if that's what he was actually trying to do, he probably would have missed.  There was no time there for him to wind up and aim.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale
