Thunder coach Scott Brooks on Serge Ibaka flagrant foul
"I know at that part, it was a scrum," Brooks said. "They were both physical and battling for position. I haven't taken a look at it yet, but I know Serge is a high character guy. I know they both were playing hard and both of them are competitors. That had no bearing."
I asked Brooks if he was concerned the NBA will give a harsher penalty after they look at Ibaka's play where he hit Blake Griffin below the belt.
"That's so hyopthetical," Brooks said. "We do our thing and have everyone play together and play hard. I know it's physical down there. There's no question both teams fight for position, for the post, for the rebounds, for the screens. That's what playoff teams do. We're two good teams."
