If this were football, the Pacers would get fifteen yards plus a first down, since this was certainly a catchable ball. Good hit though. Too bad Dwyane Wade got there a bit to early to separate man from ball.
Basketball-wise, however, not cool. I’m of the opinion that basketball players shouldn’t tackle other basketball players, especially from behind on a fast break. It’s a bold stance, I know.
At least Wade got the tiniest bit of karmic retribution for this, getting bopped in the head with the ball immediately after forearm-shivering Darren Collison. It’s a small thing, but it’s good to know someone out there is policing these things.
