In case you missed it, Melo was ejected for choking and throwing Sasha to the ground. I uploaded the video for all to see it and Sasha had some pretty great post-game comments about the incident coming off of his career high in scoring…
Rocky Mountain News: With the Lakers leading 105-87, Anthony was ejected after he hit Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic in the throat area and he went down. But minutes later Vujacic was laughing in front of the Lakers bench.
“He did a little bit of acting,’’ said Anthony, an opinion Karl agreed with after Karl said team executive Mark Warkentien reviewed the tape. “He knew what time it was. He knew I didn’t try to choke him out or anything like that. I’m done with that (having served a 15-game suspension last season for fighting).
“I did grab him, but not intentionally. His neck was right there at the time. I put my hand out.’’
Officials, per rules, reviewed the flagrant foul. It, and the ejection, stood.
“I think I’ve got to give him the DVD of European soccer,’’ Vujacic, who scored a career-high 22 points, said when told Anthony called it a flop. “Then he can really see the flops . . . I was surprised he grabbed me.’’
