During last night’s San Antonio Spurs victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, George Hill was driving for a layup when Clippers’ Craig Smith laid a hard foul on Hill in the second quarter which sent Hill hitting the floor hard.
Smith was given a flagrant-2 foul and was ejected from the game. Hill sat out the rest of the game with a spasm in his right trapezius muscle.
Tony Parker weighed in on the hard foul and had this to say:
“It was dirty,” Parker said after the game. “Just a dirty play. It was dangerous. Just no need to do that.” (Express News)
Got to agree with Parker. Indeed it was a bit too much from Smith. As the replay shows he wrapped his hands around Hill’s neck and seems to not be going for the ball. The ejection was appropriate.
In case you missed it, take a look and leave us your thoughts.
