Soooo, how did no foul get called on the play on which Morris was injured? And why wouldn't the ref who was standing right there on the baseline not blow his whistle when Semi was deliberately fouling the nearest Knick to stop the clock?

Also no foul on that Hayward play in the 1st game of the year. Maybe the NBA can keep more Celtics players from getting hurt while in the air.

How is that not a flagrant?

Seriously. We are gonna call that a flagrant?

Contact with a man's head while he's in the air? Yeah, I'd call that a flagrant.

Given calls I've seen as flagrants this year, including yes anything to the head basically, it should have been.

Again guys there needs to be some intent, not only was intent lacking but he made a play for the block meaning its not a flagrant. It was a foul tho, that the refs missed.

"Flagrant foul. In basketball, a flagrant foul is a personal foul that involves excessive or violent contact that could injure the fouled player. A flagrant foul may be unintentional or purposeful; the latter type is also called an "intentional foul" in the NBA."

Exactly.  Intent is not a definition of it.

Al got one early in the year when a guard was on the switch, so when he did a drop step and swung his elbow it was at the guard's head.  They called it.  He wasn't even looking so it wasn't intentional.  That's not part of that rule.

Ya, and that shouldn't of been a flagrant. Neither should that on Morris. Contact was made, but it wasn't excessive. Granted the play result in injury but that was more because Morris was off balance hanging on the rim. It was unfortunate. Not a flagrant.

"contact that could injure the fouled player"

So every contact that results in an injury to a  player is a flagrant? Obviously not. There has to be excessive contact, there wasn't. Its unfortunate that Morris was injured but it was incidental. But reasonable people can agree to disagree. I'm just a little tired of every little bit of contact being a flagrant.

No, it was not incidental... it was a breakaway foul. Morris was ahead of Beasley who really had no play on the ball without making contact with a defenseless airborne Morris. It was a bush league play similar to what caused Heyward's injury. NBA should do something about this.

I agree. It was head hunting at it's finest. Morris falling like that should've tipped the refs that he was hit.

Okay, are you serious? Head hunting is intentional. That wasn't intentional. I would think that we can at least agree on that much.

There was no foul on that play because there was no foul. Injuries happen even on legal plays you guys.

I don't think the head is part of the ball. You should watch it again. It's clearly a blown call.

I'm guessing he's referring to the Hayward play? Because there was clearly a foul committed against Morris.

I agree that Hayward was fouled by Crowder and/or James.

Okay, well i dont think so but again agree to disagree. All i know is I'm glad Celtics Blog posters aren't NBA refs. Then again NBA refs aren't great either.
