Nowitzki ejected for hit to Casspi’s head, can expect a fine (VIDEO)

There was no malicious intent here — Dirk Nowitzki was going for the ball and the spectacular chase-down block.

But instead he smacked Omri Casspi upside the head while the Rockets forward was going for a dunk. The referees reviewed it and rightfully called it a flagrant two, then ejected Nowitzki from Monday night’s preseason game.

You can bet Nowitzki will get a fine for that in the coming days. The league frowns on smacking guys upside the head ala Deacon Jones.

    Not cool Dirk. This is pre season, not the finals. Get it together!
