After reviewing the video from Game 1, Shaq accumulated a total of 5 personal fouls, 3 of which were directly against Rajon Rondo. As we already discussed Exhibit A, let’s take a look at Exhibits B and C (ok so maybe I was wrong in the initial post about not needing Exhibits B-Z, as B and C are needed).
Third Quarter: 9:03 mark (Rondo gets Shaq to bite on a pump fake):
Second Quarter: 11:45 mark (Rondo drives to the basket and gets bodied up by The Diesel):
Judging by these two clips as well as the previous one from the fourth quarter, the only possible gripe that Mike Brown has is the foul in the second quarter. They all seem like legit fouls, but I’ll let you guys be the judge, jury and/or executioner.
