Jason Terry should have a good case when it comes to the league reviewing his flagrant foul in the first quarter against New York's Jeremy Lin.

Even Lin didn't think it was flagrant.

Terry gave the Knicks' new sensation a firm but not nasty push to the ground on a fast break, his goal simply to prevent an easy basket.

"I don't think it was a flagrant foul," Terry said. "The league will take a look at it and rescind it if they want to. Or if not, I'll just take the hit. But even Lin said it wasn't a flagrant foul."

Lin told Terry right after the play that he didn't think it should have been ruled flagrant, which gave Lin two free throws and New York the ball. The play came near the start of a 17-0 Knicks run that put them ahead 30-18.
