Default Horford Suspended One Game For Foul On Ford

Most of you probably already heard this last night, but Horford got one game because of the Ford flagrant.

Quote:
Atlanta Hawks ' forward Al Horford has been suspended one game without pay for committing a Flagrant Foul Penalty Two by striking Torontos T.J. Ford on the head, announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations.

The incident occurred with 1:32 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Hawks' 100-88 loss to the Raptors on Tuesday night at Philips Arena. Horford will serve his suspension Friday against the Detroit Pistons .

Not sure this was the best call by the league office, but they would know better I suppose. It did not look like an intentional hit on the head to me.

It's pretty hard to referee intent... i like the rule. Horford may not have meant to hit TJ(which i believe), but he needs to have better control as well. When he began his swatting motion, the ball was WAY out of reach.
