Miami Heat thugs Haslem, Pittman suspended
Like, seriously dude?
Miami Heat big man Dexter Pittman was suspended three games for his clear flagrant foul on Indiana Pacers role player Lance Stephenson, who made a choking gesture the other day after LeBron James missed a free throw.
This was clearly premeditated. While Pittman will be out for the series, the argument can be made that he deserves a heavier penalty.
Meanwhile, Udonis Haslem was suspended just for tonight’s game after this gem.
What has gotten into these Heat?
Stop it, nobody is impressed. Just play ball.
Dexter Pittman MUST be suspended. But NO WAY Haslem should be suspended and NO WAY his foul should've been upgraded to a Flagrant 2.

Will be interesting to see if Indy gets off the mat, Haslem/Pittman suspended, but I doubt it matters much

Pittman should have gotten more. Premeditated & wink showed no remorse. RT @basketballtalk: League suspends Udonis Haslem 1 game, Pittman 3.
