Nets rookie gives reason for committing flagrant foul on Ben Simmons

Ben Simmons

Brooklyn Nets rookie Rodions Kurucs committed a flagrant 1 foul against Ben Simmons during Game 2 of the first round playoff series between the Nets and Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, and apparently there was a reason for it.
