The NBA has suspended New Orleans Hornets' Jason Smith after his rough flagrant foul on Clippers' Blake Griffin last night.
Smith was seen charging into Griffin and basically tackling him into the floor. After the play, former-Hornet Chris Paul and Smith had an altercation for what happened.
"I think it looked a lot worse than what it was, but that's still not a play that you ever want to do to another player like that," Smith said. "I apologize to Blake Griffin. I didn't want to hurt him at all. I just wanted to try and cut off his lane to the basket."
This doesn't look good for New Orleans, who's Saints have just gotten beaten down with the bounty rule. With this happening, there's going to be a lot of jokes regarding this play with the Hornets doing something of their own (sarcasm, folks).
Take a look at the play and judge for yourself:
