Ryan Anderson’s face fouled KG’s hand last night

When you’re Kevin Garnett, you get the benefit of the doubt. Like last night, when he clearly didn’t need to put his arm up to avoid Ryan Anderson, but did anyway, smacking him in the face in the process, and somehow drawing a foul on Anderson in the process. Or like right now, as some [...]
