Sacramento Kings small forward Travis Outlaw was ejected after clotheslining Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick. The play happened in the fourth quarter of a one-point game.
With his team down 78-79, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford started a fast break and then dished to Redick. After receiving the ball Redick elevated for a layup deep in the paint. From a trailing position, in an effort to break up the play, the Kings’ Outlaw grabbed Redick’s shoulder from behind and pulled him to the ground.
Travis Outlaw received a “Flagrant 2” foul on the play, and was subsequently ejected from the game.
The play is reminiscent of the infamous clothesline of Kurt Rambis by Kevin McHale.
