Dexter Pittman Suspended 3-Games, According To Report

Miami Heat center Dexter Pittman will be suspended for three-games for his flagrant foul on Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephensen on Tuesday evening, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Here is a video of the foul committed by Pittman:

As you can see, Pittman goes after Stephensen and elbows him in the throat/shoulder area. Pittman was then seen winking on the TNT replay, confirming that it was almost certainly a retaliatory move for Stephenson's "choking" sign he made to LeBron James in Game 3 last week in Indianapolis.
