Splitter did manage to pass the ball to a teammate before falling, but the Spurs...

Marcus Smart put a cheap shot on Matt Bonner in Friday night’s Celtics-Spurs game at the AT&T Center.
Bonner set a screen on Smart in the fourth quarter of the game, and the Celtics forward made the Spurs big man pay for doing so. Instead of attempting to run through the screen, though, like many other players would do, Smart deliberately punched Bonner right in the groin...

LeBron James turned in a pretty solid performance as well, finishing with 31 points. One particular Spurs fan really didn’t care for James though, judging by his actions.
It’s amazing how quickly perception can change in the NBA. On February 25th the San Antonio Spurs experienced their fourth straight loss out of the all-star break, losing to the Portland Trailblazers in a game where simply looked out classed.
