Dwight Howard Gets Flagrant Foul For Elbow to Garnett in Game 4

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard's foul

on Kevin Garnett in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals has

been upgraded to a flagrant-one foul.

The NBA made the announcement Wednesday.

Howard grabbed a rebound with 6:25 remaining in the third

quarter and swung his elbow, knocking Garnett in the face. That is

Howard's second flagrant of the playoffs; two more and he will be

suspended for one game.

The Celtics led the Magic 3-1 entering Wednesday night's game.
