"They went to basically thugging it up and that's when the game turned, and I thought the officiating went their way," Carlisle said. "They started to get calls and we weren't able to get the whistles.

"That was probably a function of their aggressiveness. But at the same time I thought there were a couple of times where a whistle could have blown for us."
On the other hand, the Jazz coach felt it ignited the team:
"I thought it was a momentum-builder," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "Everybody [became] determined they weren’t going to let anybody run over them; we were going to fight the entire time. I thought that was a big play to get us going. From there, we just picked it up."
Favors just felt he was playing physical:
Asked about the play, Favors shook his head slightly.
"I just got physical," he said. I’m going to make them call something."
Here is the play:
I think it was cool to see the nastiness in Favors. He was protecting his teammate in another game showing more of his nasty side:
Personally I like to see this type of thing from my players.
I saw some people freaking out about this calling it dirty. What they ignore is Hayward was elbowed by Dirk on a prior play and a hard foul by another Mavs player. To me it's a bit of pot calling the kettle back.
What do you guys think? Carlisle being a baby? Is this "thugging it up?"
I read some Mavs posters on another board saying Favors deserved a flagrant or a tech and that this "should be reviewed" by the league.
We all getting soft?
