Mo Williams Flagrant Fouled Stephen Curry, David Lee Retaliates


The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a tough season, dropping 19 of their last 20 games, and Mo Williams has borne the brunt of it. He seemed utterly bummed at the departure of LeBron James, and in his absence the self-proclaimed Godfather has struggled. Williams has shot only 40% from the field and 28% from beyond the three point line, averaging a meager 14.8 points per game.

Williams seemed to let his frustrations boil over Friday night against the Golden State Warriors as they were blowing out the Cavs again. With the Warriors up 17, Williams was defending a two-on-one fastbreak with David Lee and Stephen Curry coming straight at him. When Lee bounce-passed it to Curry for the apparent layup, Williams fouled him HARD. It was a flagrant-one at the time, but the replay looked much harsher than it was. Curry injured his hip, but eventually returned in the fourth quarter.

Lee eventually went tit-for-tat when Williams ran the fastbreak, and Williams showed he understood immediately. Check the video after the jump of Curry's violent hit on Williams and Lee's retaliation after the jump.

Look for the crucial clips around the 1:15 mark.
