Good job NBA
I agree that Pittman should have more then 3 games. His elbow compared to Artest's is much more severe due to Stephensons momentum and it was more of a retaliatory shot.
I don't think Haslem would have been suspended if he would have gotten thrown out but since he didn't, he's gone for game 6. If Hansbrough would have flopped or sold the contact like James or Wade does, Haslem would have been thrown out and suspended. Haslem was clearly not going for ball and aiming towards the head.
