The Lakers had won five games in a row entering Wednesday’s game versus the Nuggets and were looking for number six.
But they had to try and do so down the stretch without Dwight Howard who was ejected for a flagrant foul (a flagrant-2, to be exact) on Denver’s Kenneth Faried late in the game. Sure, it was a flagrant, but Faried acted a bit on the way down to make it look worse than it actually was. His flailing dreads didn’t help Dwight’s cause either. The Lakers would go on to lose this one.
