I didn't watch the game but came across a very disgusting play from Kevin Love on Luis Scola. While Scola was down, Love gave him a stomp on the head/chest area that knocked his head back to the ground. No calls from the refs...

I hope the NBA reviews it and does something about it because it got me steaming.

I can't post the link yet but it's the Houston/Timberwolves highlight on nba[dot]com today.

What do you guys think? It looks intentional to me.

Scola hit Love in the bawls while falling out of bounds trying to boucne it off of Love to save possession for the Rockets. Honestly, what Scola did was pure accident. If anyone on this forum or in the world was in Scola's shoes or ever has been, when u throw the ball like that at someone your not aiming for anything but the actual person's body. Love was a giant turd and is not a very good basketball player. Fact is he's putting up overachieving numbers on a horrible team, I don't care what Minnesota's record is they are flat out bad. Rubio and Love would see their numbers slashed if they were on a better team.

Cheap shot. Should be a 2-game suspension. He might get away with 1 because of the truncated season (like the delicate giant having his 5 reduced to 4).

Scola's arms were up so it looked like he was blocking Love's path. Scola is known to get under player's skin and is considered a dirty player. Plus, it was the rockets commentators so they are going to get Scola's back.

Man, that was bad. Worse than what Bynum did in the playoffs. Worse than a punch.

It better be more than a few games.

Wow- first the foul wasn't called, then Scola gets stepped on the face. That was intentional- if you're a player getting away from a guy on the ground, you'd lift up your leg, not stomp down. That should get a suspension of 2 games at least for Love.

Great I'm not alone in thinking it was dirty and intentional. I liked the the way Love plays but man, can't look at him the same anymore. A lot of respect was lost after seeing this. Can't wait to see what the NBA has to say about this tomorrow.

albert haynesworth got 5 games (31% of the nfl season)

ndamukong suh got 2 games (12% of the nfl season)

the nba's a different ballgame, but just for reference 12-31% of 82 games turns out to about 10-25 games. love's not gonna get a suspension that bad, and since he has no priors and has kept a pretty good reputation, im guessing its as low as 5 games.

I can't see K-Love doing this on purpose, but damn it sure does look like he meant to do that. Especially since after he didn't even look back

My guess is no more than 2 games.

Scola was hacked even before he got stepped on but this video just made me lose a lot of respect for Kevin Love because after seeing it 5 times i definetely think its intentional and i expect at least a 3 game suspension

Love should be banned from the NBA and kicked out of the country and sent to Kazakhstan

Definitely a dirtbag play from Love, He should be suspended without pay for atleast five games for this.

He even looks around as he's running up the floor as to look to see if anyone saw him do it.

I don't think he did it intentionally. The reason why he didn't look back is because the ball was still in play.

Per Marc Stein:

Love suspended 2 games.

Oh, and Gasol's softness cost his clown of a coach 1 game and $25,000. Hahaha!

love is becoming a very dirty player. he almost got into a fight with danny granger cuz he had granger in a headlock while trying to get a rebound. he better calm down before someone breaks his face with an elbow.
