08:07 AM ET 01.02 | Courtesy a forearm from Detroit forward Charlie Villanueva, Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas found himself on the floor late in the second quarter of Tuesday's game. Villanueva was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and automatically ejected. Thomas jumped up angrily to confront Villanueva, who at 6-foot-11 and 232 pounds has a distinct physical advantage over Thomas (5-9, 185). The Kings said it wasn't the first hard foul by Villanueva. Thomas said the fact he was airborne on the play wasn't the worst part for him. "No, it was just the fact that it was a dirty play and he's a dirty player," Thomas said. "It is what it is. He got kicked out of the game, so it wasn't nothing big. A lot of guys do stuff like that knowing you can't really fight in this league."

Seemed like a pretty weak ejection. When a large guy and a tiny guy collide while both in the air, the tiny guy will lose.
