The Chicago Bulls beat the Indiana Pacers, 87-84, for their first win over the Pacers this season, but they were without their scoring spark plug, Nate Robinson, for the fourth quarter.

You know it's a bad foul when Stacey King and Neil Funk are both upset with the excessive contact that Robinson had with Lance Stephenson, although King ends up complaining that the foul was upgraded to a flagrant-2.

The whole way through, Robinson looked like he was going to stop the free bucket at all costs, and he does it by tackling Stephenson right before he goes up for the bucket.

Nate seems to be on a bit of a bad-boy streak this year, collecting seven technical fouls so far and his third flagrant foul point of the year, getting two for this incident and one for a previous flagrant-1.

It seems as if Robinson has picked up a bit of an edge playing for the Bulls, possibly something he's developed playing in Tom Thibodeau's defense.

Either way, this is definitely a situation where he went a bit overboard, and the punishment fit the crime.
