Butler committed 1flagrant foul in his career. Chris Paul had 2 and soon to be 3 in a 6 game span

Peli's should be a formidable team in the West for the foreseeable future.
As an 8 seed, they took the #1 team and fave to win the title to the near precipice of a game 7.
This series provided the growing pains they needed to build on.

Paul plays physicial… Even walks the line at times, but he’s not dirty.

I guess so but these last few games, I felt like he crossed the line a few times on purpose with Alvarado. Crazy thing is Alvardo doesn't even playy dirty. He just plays aggressive and puts pressure on you. Didn't get his point the last 2-3 games

I love Alvarado. He works hard every night. No question he was frustrating Paul. But CP3 is a HOFer. One of the greatest ever. He is going to get the benefit of the doubt against a scrappy 21 year old. Not to mention, The Pels had a ridiculous number of free throws the entire series. Tonight was the most evenly called game all series and the Pels still had 1 more free throw.

Yeah I wasn't blaming the refs or anything for the game. Just think that play should have been at least looked at for a possible flagrant.

I don’t think he hit him in the face purposely, but a review very well could have been reversed to a technical.

It's gonna be real awkward next year when Zion comes back and the fit doesn't work the way people assume it will

Wilt is the only player with more made shots without a miss than CP (in a playoff game).

CP was on fire last night.

Griffin doing an excellent job in NO is what he does.

From what I understand of the rule, intent doesn't matter. It's almost never intentional.

Only the result of the play matters. I missed the play, but from how @bksballer89 describes it, the league may look at it. It's the playoffs, so maybe they don't change it so as to not potentially effect another series....or, since he has 2 others, maybe they decide to send a message.

I could see them going either way on it.
