Kevin Garnett was ejected with more than eight minutes remaining in Boston’s victory over Indiana on Friday night after committing a Flagrant 2 on Tyler Hansbrough. Garnett swung down on Hansbrough as he drove into the paint.
A Flagrant 2 carries with it an automatic ejection.
“I’ve got nothing to say about it,” Hansbrough said afterward. “It is what it is.”
Garnett insisted that he didn’t mean to target anyone’s face.
“I was firm, I didn’t mean to get him in the face like that,” he said. “I was actually trying to swipe the ball, but it was a physical game and they called it the way it was, part of the game.”
