Knight: Metta ‘Definitely Threw a Punch’
(Metta) World Peace was assessed a Flagrant-One foul and allowed to remain in the game. (Brandon) Knight insists World Peace threw a punch and should have faced a stiffer penalty after the incident, which occurred with 1:43 remaining in the first half.
“He threw a punch,” Knight said. “He held me at first. I was trying to push him off of me. … That’s when he threw a punch. That’s when I tried to push him in the face, or whatever it was, whatever I did.”
“I was surprised the ref didn’t see him throw that punch,” Knight said. “The play needs to be reviewed because he definitely threw a punch.”
