Mike Dunleavy Avoids Suspension for Hit on Michael Carter-Williams

Game 6 of Bulls-Bucks got chippy, as both teams vented a little bit during the 54-point blowout win for Chicago. Giannis Antetokounmpo was ejected for tackling Mike Dunleavy at one point. That came after Dunleavy did this to Michael Carter-Williams on the other end:


But according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the NBA has reviewed the play and Dunleavy will not be suspended, and will be a go for Game 1 against the Cavaliers on Monday night:

Chicago Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy has escaped a suspension for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, league sources told Yahoo Sports.


Dunleavy hadn’t been called for two-handed contact to the back of the neck of Milwaukee’s Michael Carter-Williams in Chicago’s Game 6 victory on Thursday.


After an NBA review, the league upgraded that play to a flagrant 1 foul call, league sources told Yahoo Sports.


Dunleavy will be in the starting lineup on Monday for Chicago’s Game 1 meeting with Cleveland in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Dunleavy averaged 10.5 points, including 55 percent on three-point shooting, in the six-game series against the Bucks.
