Video: Pacers Shrug Off Larry Sanders’ Ejection

Milwaukee Bucks forward Larry Sanders briefly lost his mind last night in Indiana, acting like he was ready to fight the entire Pacers team after he was ejected from the game. Indy wasn’t fazed by any of it, reports the Star: “First, Leandro Barbosa showed that they’re still not over the fact that Mike Dunleavy broke Tyler Hansbrough’s nose and cheekbone last month when he delivered a free safety type hit on the former Pacer on his lay up attempt. It’s probably good that Barbosa got to Dunleavy first because Hansbrough was coming hard after his former teammate on the play. Barbosa’s flagrant foul came just days after David West nearly took off Dunleavy’s neck with a hard foul in Milwaukee. Dunleavy addressed the bad blood with Hansbrough with Bucks beat writer Charles Gardner after the game. ‘That’s between me and him,’ Dunleavy said. ‘Without getting too much into it, he pulled something that wasn’t right. It’s too bad other guys had to come into the fray on it. At least it’s guys who I didn’t play with seem to be the guys taking the fouls. At least from that regard it’s honorable. Barbosa and West, those guys didn’t play with me. At least they sent them to do the dirty work. It’s too bad because it’s between me and Tyler and he knows what he did.’ Then Bucks Larry Sanders had words with George Hill after he picked up his second technical for getting upset over being called for a foul when he ran Danny Granger over. West came to his teammate’s defense. Sanders, who pointed his finger in West’s face, acted like he was going to go after the Pacers power forward when he circled around and had a direct line toward West. [...] ‘It’s one of those things where I know I can handle myself in all that ruckus,’ West said. ‘I just wanted to make sure that our guard was out of the way. If there was anything, which I knew wasn’t going to happen, I’d take the brunt of it.’ [...] ‘They’re smart veterans,’ head coach Frank Vogel said. ‘They understand how to be a man and standup for themselves without being unintelligent.’”

    West would have decked his monkey a$$. At least guys stood up for Hill unlike the Bulls and Clippers with Rose and Blake.

    Lol at Frank Vogel. He was like you guys aren’t about to mess up my playoff run. Larry Sanders was just mad because he wasn’t going to the playoffs. If anything the Bucks should be kissing the Pacers @sses because the Pacers gave the Bucks a chance to make the playoffs by beating Philly the other night. Too bad the Bucks got blown out by the Washington Wizards. And of course Larry Sanders weak @ss wants to fight the PG cus he’s the smallest guy on the floor til West came over.

    Check the other video SLAM posted on Griffin, T-Ray. Nick Young immediately went to Lopez when he took Griffin down.

    You’re right Gerard totally forgot about that. It was funny to see Lopez shove him and Williams off like it was nothing lol I commend Young for even stepping to him but I would like it if someone like K Mart or Jordan stepped to him.
