For those who saw the end of game 5 between Chicago and Boston...did you think that was a flagrant foul on Rondo when he hit Brad Miller in the mouth as he drove to the hoop?

Personally I thought it was. He had zero intention of going after the ball and took the body and even bloodied him up a little bit.

Thoughts?

I agree. Especially after looking at it on replay, he wan't even close to blocking that shot.

I don't buy into the argument that calling the foul puts the game in the hands of the refs. That was a bad play by Rondo, wouldn't have been a bad call on the refs.

Its hard to say if it was a flagrant or not. It shows that Rondo was trying to get the block/steal the ball out of Miller's hands, but he got him clearly in the face.

Personally I think it could of gone either way.
