Sullinger's flagrant on Blake Griffin downgraded
I'd love to know why the refs even bother to review it in game if they going to be complete morons and not realize when it's not a flagrant at the time. :pity:
Jared Sullinger got tagged with two flagrant-1 fouls during the four-game road trip to close out 2012, picking them up for hard fouls on Brooklyn's Gerald Wallace and Los Angeles' Blake Griffin while trying to prevent easy buckets.
Upon video review, the league downgraded the latter of those two calls, according to a league spokesman.
Sullinger now only has one flagrant point this season. That's somewhat important as a player that exceeds three flagrant points is subject to an automatic suspension (which means Sullinger was a flagrant-2 away from a potential suspension).
Rajon Rondo and Jason Collins also have one flagrant point apiece this season.
