Video: Rudy Gay Flagrant 2 Foul on Luis Scola

UPDATE: Rudy Gay has been suspended one game without pay, the NBA announced today.

Rudy Gay may face suspension after this Flagrant 2. As the Memphis Commercial Appeal tells it: “Gay fell to the court after appearing to take an elbow to the face. When he rose to his feet, Gay charged like a bull about half the length of the court and threw a hard forearm to Scola‘s back. Unsuspecting, Scola fell to the floor as Shane Battier buried a baseline 3-pointer. The officials automatically charged Gay with a flagrant 2 foul, and ejected the Grizzlies’ leading scorer. Scola received two free throws. ‘I let my anger get the best of me,’ Gay said. ‘It’s not characteristic of me or anybody else on this team. I probably shouldn’t have done that. Me as a leader, I probably shouldn’t have done that.’”

    Gay gets Scola from behind? Low blow.

  • PlanetAsia14

    I don’t really like Scola, low blow, but I approve, I hate when those calls go unnoticed.

    Co-sign estoniandude. Ridiculous how the refs didn’t even catch that Dre’ on Griffin hit the first time..

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Gay did catch an elbow to the face, and when Scola fell, he inadvertently tripped him as well. Bad plays from both players, but I don’t think Scola meant to rough him up like that. Ah well, players get mad–it’s a physical game. Not a huge deal imo, though a suspension would be reasonable if Dre got the same.

  • dmoore

    would have not been a big deal back in the day, back then would have just been a personal or tech at most

    Wow, so much homophobia.

  • Kyle

    Scola did something, and I’m a fan of his, but flagrant 2? He wasn’t hurt, and who cares?

    I know for a fact a dude from Argentina did something much worse before the retaliation.

  • youngmuggsy

    Back in the day …. blah blah…. Charles Oakley …. Headbutts …. Anthony Mason …. Toughness ….. blah blah… etc.

  • the Rudy Gay Pride

    obviously this all stems back from the ’07 season when Rudy Gay destroyed Scola and Mutombo with that nasty, nasty jam. Check youtube if you need to refresh your memory, Scola looks the fool, Poster-City
