No suspension for Perk

New, comments

Via boston.com:

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins said he was fined $10,000 by the NBA for a hard foul he had on Pistons forward Jason Maxiell during last Friday's game in Auburn Hills, Mich. Perkins said he wasn't disappointed by the fine since he thought he would get fined worse.

While I'm sure Perk isn't thrilled with a $10,000 fine, it's fortunate for the team that he wasn't suspended.  While there was some precedent with the Bynum flagrant, you can never predict what the league is going to do when it concerns the Celtics.
