Vince Carter suspended one game for elbow to Steven Adams’ head

Nov 8, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

When this happened we told you Vince Carter could expect a league-mandated vacation, and that has come to pass.

Dallas’ Carter has been suspended one game for throwing an intentional elbow to the head of Oklahoma City rookie Steven Adams. Carter will be out Friday night when the Mavericks take on the Timberwolves

Carter was ejected for the third quarter Wednesday night for the play you see above. Adams caught Carter with an inadvertent elbow while pulling down an offensive rebound, and Carter responded with an intentional elbow to the Adams’ head. Pretty cut and dried. Everyone knew the suspension was coming, not even Mark Cuban will argue this one.

    If you think Carter’s elbow was unintentional…’re a blind idiot.

      A preemptive strike on a possible troll claim? Yes, we all know the elbow was intentional.

    the bigger question: what the hell kind of defense was VC playing to begin with?
