Found March 25, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Really, there's no excuse for Nate Robinson's foul last night.  The Chicago Bulls' guard was trying to prevent an uncontested dunk by Indiana Pacers' guard Lance Stephenson.  Rather than fouling as if he were trying to reach for the ball, Robinson made it very clear that he simply had no intentions of allowing Stephenson to reach the hoop.  He grabbed Stephenson from behind by his shoulders and pulled him to the ground.It was a dangerous play and one that Robinson was rightly ejected from the game for.  Robinson will likely receive a fine and possibly even a suspension.  That's how flagrant and malicious this foul was.  Check out the video:Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
