Carmelo Anthony appeared to be on the wrong side of a call during Sunday night’s road game against the Portland Trailblazers.

The first-year Oklahoma City Thunder forward drove to the bucket and made contact with the upper body and primarily the head of Jusuf Nurkic, subsequently being slapped with a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection.

Following the game, the officials explained why they chose to eject Anthony from the tilt.
