Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was hit with a flagrant foul for his block attempt on Torrey Craig on Thursday night.

KCP was trying to block Craig on a fastbreak play just before halftime of Game 6 between his Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns. He went up and swatted Craig’s arm.

Caldwell-Pope’s play was upgraded to a flagrant 1 foul following a review by the officials. The officials gave Craig a technical foul for the previous play. They also gave Caldwell-Pope and Jae Crowder double-technical fouls for their talking after the block play.

The Lakers went into halftime down 62-41 as they were facing elimination in the series.
