Elton Brand of the Philadelphia 76er’s has been suspended one game without pay for his Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two against JaValle McGee of the Washington Wizards, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.
The incident, in which Brand made contact by shoving McGee during a layup attempt and was ejected following the Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two call, occurred with 3:32 remaining in the 4th period of the 76er’s 116-114 overtime loss to the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.Here's a video of the play, courtesy of YouTuber user thehoopscene. As you can see, McGee is wide open in the paint when he receives a pass from point guard John Wall. He goes to dunk the ball with his right hand, and Brand rotates over late, using both arms to shove McGee in the chest. McGee finishes the dunk and crashes to the floor, and Brand was immediately ejected by official Tony Brothers. While laying on the floor, McGee smiled and briefly waved goodbye to Brand.
