After dragging down J.J. Redick by the head and neck while not making a play on the ball, Sacramento Kings forward Travis Outlaw will be paying the price—literally.
While Redick was going up for a layup, Outlaw came from behind and basically clotheslined him.
Kings Travis Outlaw nailed $15k "for making excessive and unnecessary contact with Clippers guard J.J. Redick." Was a Flagrant 2.— Jeff Caplan (@Caplan_NBA) November 24, 2013
Since there was little to no attempt made on the ball, the ruling of a flagrant-2 foul was obvious and completely valid.
