Wizards fans were whipped up into a fury during last night's season opener after a dangerous foul on John Wall.
Wall got out on the fast break and was going up for a dunk. Hawks small forward Kent Bazemore was trailing and couldn't make a play on the ball, so he undercut Wall's legs while he was in the air.
The Wizards All-Star, who's coming off two offseason knee surgeries, leapt up in a fury and came for Bazemore. The pair were separated and a flagrant foul was assessed.
The next morning, Bazemore said he regrets his actions. He put himself in Wall's shoes and apologized to him on Twitter.
This game has done wayyyy too much for me to play it that way. I've been undercut and it's not a fun feeling. My apologies bro @JohnWall— Scot Harvath (@24Bazemore) October 28, 2016
His words echo reactions in the Wizards locker room after the loss. Coach Scott Brooks said there's no place in the NBA for plays like that.
Wall took a sharper tone, reminding media of the undercut play that broke his hand in the 2015 playoffs. Many believe the injury cost the Wizards a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals.
That also took place on the Hawks' home court.
