Glen Davis ejected after hard foul on Anderson Varejao

A flagrant-2 foul was called on Celtics power forward Glen Davis Friday night in Boston in a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Early in the third quarter, Cavs forward/center Anderson Varejao had the ball and drove at the rim, coming alongside the left baseline.

As Varejao went up for his shot, Davis jumped with both his arms up, but brought both arms down, making contact with Varjao’s neck and shoulder area. There was enough of a follow-through motion for the refs to call it a flagrant-2.

I think the refs made the right call.

A few players from both teams rushed over to make sure no one started to fight, but nothing happened.

A flagrant-2 foul results in an ejection. So, Davis is gone from the game.

Doc Rivers became furious as the refs told him what was up. He must have not seen the replay.

And then pointless, silly technical fouls were called on LeBron James, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Ray Allen for rushing over and sort of holding on to each other for a few seconds.
