HibachiDG is on a distinguished road

By the letter of the law, I'm not so sure Amare and Boris should be suspended. The letter of the law says they can't come off of the bench for an "altercation". Boris and Amare got up in response to Nash getting checked into the boards. Which is a foul, not an altercation.

Now, if you come off the bench and an altercation occurs, you're a catalyst for the altercation. In this case, they went back before taking part in or escalating the altercation.

By the letter of the law, they should not have been suspended. If the NBA wanted to stretch it in the most rigid manner possible, then they could choose to do so, but I don't think that is a good move...although they have done so.
