For all the talk about whether the two dunks Blake Griffin dropped on Pau Gasol in Wednesday's win for the Lakers over the LAC, the only play that was actually dirty (as opposed to simply being an offensive foul) came in the third when he pushed an airborne Gasol in the back as Pau tried to finish in transition.

After further review, the NBA agreed, upgrading what had simply been a personal foul to a flagrant-1.

It was the proper decision, for sure. That sort of thing shouldn't be tolerated.
