SHARE NBA LOOKING AT RODMAN’S PUSHY PLAY

The NBA is reviewing the altercation in which Detroit's Dennis Rodman pushed Chicago's Scottie Pippen into a basket support in the final game of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday.

Rod Thorn, the league's vice president for operations, said Tuesday in Chicago that the league office is reviewing films of the incident before determining whether to take any action.The altercation came in the second quarter of Chicago's 115-94 victory, which gave them a four-game sweep and ended the Pistons' hopes of a third straight NBA championship.

The incident involving Rodman came after an altercation that resulted in double technical fouls to Detroit's Bill Laimbeer and Chicago's John Paxson and a flagrant foul called on Laimbeer.

While Laimbeer's flagrant foul was enforced, giving Chicago two shots and the ball, it wasn't listed in the official box score of the game. Nor was any call made against Rodman, although NBC's telecast of the game showed clearly that he pushed Pippen.
