Paul Pierce’s foul flagrant enough to draw flag in NFL game

Paul Pierce was ejected from Monday night’s Nets-Pacers game in Brooklyn for a flagrant-two foul on Indiana guard George Hill.

How flagrant? If this happened in the NFL, Pierce not only would have drawn a flag, but he also would have been fined by the league office.

As Hill readied himself for a layup attempt after making a steal on the defensive end of the floor, Pierce failed to make a play on the ball and clotheslined his opponent.

The Pacers won the game 103-86. Check out Pierce’s hard foul in the video below.
