derek fisher elbows luis scola and is ejected

The Houston Rockets are visting the Los Angeles Lakers for Game 2 of their second round series. And things got touchy late in the third quarter, with hostility exchanged between Rockets forward Luis Scola and several Lakers.

With 13.2 seconds left in the third, Derek Fisher set a screen against Scola, but in the process of doing so, slammed into Scola and elbowing him hard.

Referees watched the replay and gave Fisher a flagrant-2 foul, which results in an ejection.

Fisher clearly deserved to be tossed. And don’t be surprised if he’s suspended for Game 3.
