Magic-Hawks (Game 3): Zaza, J-Rich and Dwight get into it late, and refs get the fouls right

Last night in Atlanta it got a little crazy down the stretch in the Magic-Hawks playoff game #3.

The most controversy occurred with 2:22 remaining in the 4th quarter when Zaza Pachulia (Atlanta), Jason Richardson and Dwight Howard (Orlando) were involved in an altercation, which led to Pachulia and Richardson getting ejected.

Just a few minutes earlier, Zaza had flopped to draw an offensive foul on Howard, which is the first clip in the video below. Then as you’ll see in the second clip, things got real chippy when Zaza came down hard on the arm of Howard, who retaliated, setting off a firestorm.

    Thanks for the video, though it is hard to understand how Howard gets a tech for the way his body reacts to a hard foul… he was the one fouled!

      He “used” that contact to flail his arm to hit Zaza in the face unnaturally to retaliate.
