Video of Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett getting ejected after a dirty play on Phoenix Suns big man Channing Frye. Posted by Ben Golliver.

The Phoenix Suns were leading the Boston Celtics, 80-69, with roughly four minutes to go in the fourth quarter down in the desert, when all heck broke loose. It all started when Phoenix Suns big man Channing Frye attempted a three-pointer, and Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett closed out to defend. As part of the close out, Garnett extended his right hand and contacted Frye fairly lightly in the genital region, and he also slid his right foot underneath Frye, causing Frye's left foot to come down on Garnett's right foot, which led to an awkward landing.

Frye came to the ground without twisting his ankle too badly and initially doubled over in pain, clutching his groin. Soon after, though, Frye got up and got directly into Garnett's face, as Garnett pretended like he didn't know what had happened and why he had been whistled for a foul. Frye clearly took issue with Garnett's action and yelled at him directly, and the two players touched foreheads as they jostled. Suns big man Marcin Gortat and official Steve Javie tried to act as intermediaries to break up the scuffle, but the scrum quickly grew in numbers as members of both teams got in on the pushing and shoving action.

Here's video that shows the post-foul scrum and then multiple replays from different angles of Garnett's foul on Frye.



After everyone settled down, the officials engaged in a lengthy review. The result: Garnett was whistled for a foul on the play, a double technical was called on Garnett and Frye, and then Garnett was issued a second technical foul and was ejected. Celtics center Kendrick Perkins and Celtics guard Nate Robinson were also assessed technical fouls for their roles in the scrum.

The official explanation for Garnett's ejection: he was assessed the first technical for his initial actions in scuffling with Frye and the second technical was for continuing to jaw after the fact.

The Suns held on to close out the home win over the Celtics, 88-71.

Oh and Noah is such an innocent player too right?

I know Kevin Garnett can play dirty and has at times but so have a lot of players in the NBA.  Now thats not me condoning what he does because I don't back what he does but to single him out is a little nuts (np pun intended).



...i used to  like the sox...but id rather the yankees blow them out now

And why is this?  What does the Red Sox have to do with Garnett?

If you believe that KG is the third wheel on the Celtics this season then you simply haven't been paying attention. He has been clearly the best and most important player they have.

He has regained his explosiveness and he has been downright unstoppable at times on both ends of the floor. You saw the Celtics worst game of the year in a trap game on the road. I'm happy with the 35-11 record - especially because they haven't played their best basketball yet this season.

Exagerate much? You call that a "blast" in the balls? There is seriously some bizarre and misdirected KG hate going on here over an incident which is only a bibig deal because the referee totoally blew the Technical Foul calls and made it a bigger deal.

KG's foot placement was a foul. No debate there - whether it was intentional or not it has to be a foul. But he did nothing to warrant a T let alone two T's.

Javie was out of his mind blowing several calls int he first half, and what he did in the final four minutes was mind boggling.And that's coming from someone who has been watching and/or playing bball for 30 years.

You call Garnett an "ultra-thug"? Reallllly? And you want your comments to be taken seriously?

What exactly is an ultra thug anyway? Is Garnett carrying a blade or gun onto the floor and slicing or shooting opposing players . . . because one would think that to be an "ultra-thug" you'd need to be "ultra-violent".

Stop with the envy, its very unbecoming.

Did you know that "bald-faced liar" only became a phrase because people were mishearing the original 'bold-faced liar.' 
On a side note; How would it be possible for everyone to lie about their opinion?
That just doesn't make sense.  
Here is a small dialog...
Me: "Hey shirlc, I think Miller High Life tastes better from the bottle than from the can."
shirlc: "You're a bald-faced liar."
Me: "Come on shirlc, it is just my opinion...How could I be lying about that?"
shirlc: "Did you just shave? Because you are a BALD faced liar!"
Me: "Dude, I am rocking a beard right now, why are you calling me bald face?"
shirlc: "That's the way the cookie rumbles."
- P.S.  KG should think about become a bald face himself because that beard is fronkin' stupid!

Wow.. watched this expecting to see something dramatic.This is a lot to doabout nothing. the Celtic haters will be all over it andthe Boston homers will defend but in truth this was really nothing. i do not think Garnett was going for the groin but when Frye leaped and came down it hit there. It happens so fast I think he was going for a stomach tap or chest tap as that happens a lot. Much to do about nothing.

Give me a break!   Terrible call by the ref.  It's pretty obvious when you see the replay that he was NOT even looking at Frye...that he'd turned around and had his hand out in the typical guard position.  To me that ref made a BAD call which fueled the Suns Frye's fire to make a HUGE deal out of this.  It should of been a No Call period.  Even one of the commentators on TNT said that!  I hope everyone that believes in FAIR play and FAIR officiating will write in to the NBA Basketball Commissioner and the Officiating Committee to complain about the POOR officiating and calls made in this game.   I feel bad for KG.  I have watched him for years and there is one thing for sure, he is NOT a dirty player!  Anyone who says otherwise is a bald faced liar!   Hope all write in to the NBA commissioner and head of officiating.  ShirlC
