Ben Simmons fined $20K, given flagrant foul for elbowing Kyle Lowry in groin
Kyle Lowry dismissed Ben Simmons elbowing him in the groin during the 76ers’ Game 2 win over the Raptors as nothing worth dwelling over.
The league felt differently.
I thought Simmons might get away with it because Lowry downplayed the incident. But Lowry’s response shouldn’t have mattered, only Simmons’ action.
And that warranted this penalty.
