Jeff Teague's flagrant foul on LeBron got a Hawks fan bulldozed
With just over nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Atlanta Hawks held an eight-point lead in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Hawks, down 0-2 in the series, desperately needed to pull out a win if they had any chance of making this round competitive against the Cavs.
Instead, Cleveland went on an absurd run of 3-point shooting and easy looks at the rim, while Atlanta fell apart on both ends of the floor. The Cavs came away with a 121-108 win and a 3-0 lead in the series.
As the game got out of hand for the Hawks late, Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague committed a pretty cheap foul on LeBron, shoving James as he drove to the rim and sending the Cavs forward into the stands:
LeBron was okay, because he's a locomotive of a human being, and Teague was whistled for a flagrant foul. It didn't really impact the outcome of the game, but you have to feel bad for the people in the crowd who got flattened by the King.
