08:05 AM ET 04.27 | Though the Pacers had been considered the series' thugs, Danny Granger saw things quite differently. Granger had to be restrained from going after Bulls center Joakim Noah as the teams exchanged handshakes on the court at the end of the Bulls' series-ending 116-89 win. Granger accused Noah of playing dirty throughout the game, taking cheap shots at Pacers, including forward Josh McRoberts, who was ejected in the third quarter. Granger was in the hallway outside the locker room using expletives to describe Noah's play. "Everybody saw what Josh did and he got ejected," Granger said. "Nobody caught what happened first. It's always the second man. [Noah] was playing dirty the whole game. My teammates got caught with it and nothing happened."

I agree... he's been that way even in Florida. That's probably what coaches like about him, and da Bulls!

That is unbelievable, the Pacers took a cheap shot at Derrick Rose every game. Jeff Foster had two flagrant one's and should have been suspended. And McRoberts was thrown out of last nights game, for two strait four-arms to the head and Noah was the dirty player?

But with the soft way Danny Granger goes about playing the game of basketball I'm sure everyone is playing dirty to him.

The NBA used to have hundreds of guys like Noah....now everyone wants to hug each other after the game
We need more hate and animosity in the NBA

I can't stand Noah. I'm not sure I would label him a "dirty" player but I definitely don't like him.
