Andrew Bynum's Cheap Shot On J.J. Barea

In case you didn’t see the game Sunday, here is video of Andrew Bynum’s dirty elbow to an airborn J.J. Barea late in Game 4.

The play came with the Lakers 30 points behind with 8:21 remaining, just seconds after Lamar Odom had been ejected for a less egregious shove of Dirk Nowitzki. Barea drove the lane and was in the air attempting a layup as Bynum body blocked him elbow first and sent him flying to the ground sideways. Like Odom, Bynum received a “flagrant 2” foul which meant an immediate ejection and likely a suspension to begin the 2011-12 season.

Ron Artest was ejected in Game 2 for a flagrant shot to Barea’s face when that game was out of hand late. He was suspended for Game 3 as a result.

With the win, Dallas will move on to the Western Conference Finals, facing the winner of the Memphis GrizzliesOklahoma City Thunder series.
