May 27, 2016 9:13 PM

Bismack Biyombo would have been suspended for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals after picking up his fourth Flagrant Foul points of the playoffs.

Biyombo hit the chin of Kevin Love while scoring a basket for the Raptors. After Love went down to the floor, referees reviewed the play and ruled it a flagrant foul penalty 1, which also took away the basket scored by Biyombo.

The NBA could rescind the flagrant foul call after reviewing it further, but the Cavaliers eliminated the Raptors with the win in Game 6.
