Utah will be BOOMING

The big question heading into today was what type of action the league would take against Baron Davis for his foolish elbow to long time flopper extraordinaire Derek Fisher in Game 4. According to Chris Sheridan [ESPN], Baron Davis will not be suspended for tonight's game. Instead the NBA's Executive VP of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson has assessed Davis with a flagrant foul, category 2.

Do you think this was the right move or should Baron be suspended for Game 5?

UPDATE: Here's some more details on the league's decision from Janny Hu [SFGate]:

That means if either Davis or Jason Richardson (who was also hit with a flagrant-2 for flooring Mehmet Okur in the final minute of Game 4) picks up another flagrant foul during the postseason, they'll be automatically suspended for the next game under league rules.

And yes, that does carry over into next season. So, for example, if Davis picks up a flagrant tonight and the Warriors are eliminated, he's out for the regular-season opener.

Here's Baron's response:
"I thought it was fair. My intent wasn't to hurt anybody out there, especially my good friend Derek Fisher. It's the playoffs, there's a lot of contact out there. ... The league's been watching us ever since the Dallas series. I don't know why all eyes are on us. There's a other things going on in other series that are just as physical."
