Miami Heat forward Chris "Birdman" Andersen received a flagrant foul in the second quarter of Thursday night's Game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals by knocking Indiana Pacers forward Tyler Hansborough to the ground and then shoving him. It happened away from the play as Paul George had just grabbed a defensive rebound and passed the ball up the floor. Andersen just decided to give Hansborough a shoulder-to-shoulder body check that was hard enough to knock Hansborough to the floor. When Hansborough got up, they got in each other's faces and bumped chests, then Andersen gave Hansborough a shove for good measure. Andersen received a flagrant-1 on the play and both players received a technical foul, with Hansborough making one of two free throws. Not only was Andersen able to stay in the game, but he blocked a Hansborough shot on the next Pacers offensive possession. The Heat won the game 90-79 to take a 3-2 series lead. H/T LBS.
