I awaken Matt Moore from his sick bed to talk about a different kind of hacking. We're talking about flagrant fouls, inspired by Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva getting ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Kings when he fouled Isaiah Thomas hard. Are we too sensitive about flagrant fouls? Is the system for reviewing flagrant fouls executed properly? Should there be a new kind of foul for just lazy or dumb fouls?
We also talk about the Clippers and Lakers both losing Tuesday night. The Clippers' winning streak is over and the Lakers weren't able to get above .500. There isn't reason to panic with the Clippers but should we be worried about the Lakers and Dwight Howard's back? And how incredible was JaVale McGee's 3-pointer against the Clippers?
We discuss all of that plus odd player comparisons and preview Wednesday night's games.
