Hawks star Al Horford earned a Flagrant 2 and ejection from the game for dropping an elbow on the Cavs’ Matthew Dellavedova late in the first half of tonight’s Eastern Conference Finals Game 3.

Dellavedova earned a technical for his role in the incident, but that’s minor compared to what the Hawks will lose for the rest of this almost-must-win basketball game.
