I just find it incredibly ironic that Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson was accusing the Denver Nuggets of playing dirty last night, and here is one of his players committing the hardest and most dangerous foul of the game.
During the second quarter of Game 5 of the first round match up between the teams, Warriors center Andrew Bogut pushed Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried to the floor by placing both his hands on his throat.

WAR OF WORDS
Warriors coach Mark Jackson had some words for the Nuggets after the game. He accused Denver of playing dirty and targeting players.
Jarrett Jack was denied at the rim emphatically by Kenneth Faried during the first half of the Nuggets and Warriors Game 5 Playoff match-up.
