    Yes agree, both sides should face stiff penalties.

    wasn't too bad. pacers versus pistons was way worse. but I have to go with Philippines. they fouled hard but that happens. the Australian guy with the elbow after the foul should be punished. that was ridiculous. sure some racism was involved.

    Its still big news wordwide. Here a screenshot of Germany's biggest Sport magazine Kicker ( primarily football ) All other German (major) media outlets were picking up the story. Bottom line: Aussie player started - Philippines overreacted and went over the top. I guess huge fines and long term suspensions on both sides!
