Didn't watch the game so if anyone has a clip of the elbow thrown that would be great.

I dont think so.

i remember back in the day karl malone elbowed and gave stitches to a blazer. i think it was either brian grant or dale davis, i cant remember.

but it was obviousley on purpose and no foul was called and no suspension or anything, just a band-aid.

Unfortunately he got what he deserved. You don't go trying to elbow someone in the face.

This is good for Orlando. It will fire them up for game 6 and they could steal one in Philly. If not, they'll be at home for game 7 with a fresh Dwight Howard...76ers have no shot.

Dwight obviously pulls that elbow away from Dalembert, it looks like more of a warning shot; also, Dalembert is obviously elbowing Dwight in the back and then pushes him. I think if there was going to be a punishment it should have been an ejection at that point. A later punishment after looking at replays is poor judgement by the NBA.


P.S. In the old NBA, this type of play was an every game occurrence for Karl Malone and he was never penalized in any way. New NBA rules are too soft.

Just like they had no shot in game 1 with a fresh Dwight, right?

You do not want a game 7 if you are orlando, if I'm management I'm severaly disappointed with him because it opens up the door for ANY player to get hot and drop 20-30 points.

So if the 76ers reach the second round it will be a FRAUDULENT ADVANCEMENT and will prove Tony Dileo is Gay

It will be nothing like game 1. Do you know how hard it is to win a game 7 on the road...when you're the lower seed? Sorry but even if Orlando loses tomorrow, they will close out the series in the following game.

The Boston and Philly fans here are practically blowing their collective wads in glee over this one. Yes, Howard deserved a suspension for connecting with that elbow to the head.

However, the whole idea behind competition is beating the best out there --at least for those who really want to BE the best team as opposed to simply having the most opportune circumstances helping them most of the way.

You think Larry Bird was happy not to get to face Magic in the 86 finals because the Rockets beat an injured Lakers team? I doubt he was happy getting to steamroll an obviously inferior team.

A fan who isn't a loser would want their team to be able to beat their competition with all of its personel being healthy and/or available.
