    Hawks F Al Horford ejected after Flagrant 2 foul

    Hawks forward Al Horford was ejected in the second quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday after committing a Flagrant 2 foul against the Cavaliers' Matthew Dellavedova. Horford, who was leading the Hawks with 14 points and four rebounds, was entangled with Dellavedova when he delivered an elbow to the Cleveland guard's head with 34.3 seconds remaining in the half. After the officials reviewed the foul, with Cleveland fans chanting Dellavedova's name, they decided to assess a Flagrant 2 to Horford, which results in an automatic ejection, and a technical foul to Dellavedova. A Flagrant 2 foul also warrants a one-game suspension, which could be huge for a Hawks team on the ropes and without guard Kyle Korver.

    Budenholzer 'hopeful' that Hawks C Al Horford will play Sunday

    Hawks center Al Horford will likely be available for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference final Sunday in Cleveland. His status seemed quite uncertain when he banged knees with Iman Shumpert early in the fourth quarter Friday night and limped off the court. "He had two or three different times where he got hit in the same spot," Mike Budenholzer said. "The feedback from him after the game, I think that he's going to be OK. ... A couple hits, a couple bangs, we're hopeful that he'll be fine going into Game 3." Horford, who checked back in a few minutes later, has been one of his team's few accurate shooters in the series. He has hit on 65 percent (13-for-20) from the field.
