Nuggets' Jordan Hamilton ejected for punching Thunders' Steven Adams (GIF)

Last night the Oklahoma City Thunder got a big win over a solid Denver Nuggets team. With 11:01 left in the game, Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton was ejected after being called for a flagrant foul 2 for this incident withThunder center Steven Adams.

Adams has taken some punishment this year, against the Dallas Mavericks this year he was the recipient of an elbow from Vince Carter. In both cases Adams just kept playing, he is the league’s anti-flopper. Twice he had legitimate opportunities to flop or embellish but neither time chose to.

In this case Hamilton was upset with a step-out screen Adams made. Just normal basketball, but you can’t take a swing at someone. He looks surprised to find out he has been ejected, but you can clearly see him swing a fist at his face.
