The Chauncey Billups "tackle"

Seriously, how did this go unnoticed and unmentioned during the game. During the Cav's possession where they had the shot clock violation, Billups clearly dove at Varejao - without making an attempt for the ball - and tried put his shoulder into Varejao's head. It was a dirty play and I don't see how half the world (and the refs) missed it.

Probably went unmentioned because as you noted there was a shot clock violation. Had there been a few seconds left on the clock there, Billups may have been called for the foul. But, I didn't think it was intentional at all.
