Kevin Garnett was ejected Friday night for a flagrant foul two against the Indiana Pacers' Tyler Hansbrough. And the crowd went wild.

Technically, that's accurate. KG was ejected for a flagrant two. If you wanted to be a little more direct about things, you could just say KG decked Psycho T in the face. At least that sounds cooler.

Speaking of cool, KG has clearly lost his of late. He's frustrated with the way his team is playing and has already voiced his intentions to ramp up his own intensity. But considering the ferocity Garnett employs on the court to begin with, that's a little like saying asking a rabid dog to get even angrier.

Hansbrough weighed in on the elbow-face meeting he shared with KG, and Pacers beat writer Mike Wells relayed the opinion via Twitter:

Garnett's play might not have been deliberately dirty, but it's pretty hard to argue that his downward swipe was much of a basketball play.

As for Garnett's reaction to the incident, Ben Rohrbach of got this gem from KG:

Well then. That's sufficiently terrifying, and also a little weird. It's safe to say the league office also won't be "messing around" when it comes to KG's impending fine.
