Rod Thorn, the NBA's dean of discipline, has a tough decision to make. Should Dwight Howard's elbowing foul against Andrew Bogut from Game 4 of the Western Conference finals be upgraded to a flagrant-2, which would force Howard to miss Game 5.
The precedent is there, whether it was Al Horford getting ejected from Game 3 of the Atlanta-Cleveland series or J.R. Smith getting suspended two games for elbowing Jae Crowder of Boston during the first round.
Elbows to the head are a serious matter .... but so, too, is keeping the NBA playoffs interesting ... and keeping them on the air for as many days as possible before everything shuts down for a week prior to the start of the NBA Finals. All in all, this year's playoffs have not been great.
Let's face it ... the Rockets probably have no shot whatsoever in Game 5 if Howard is suspended.
And let's face this, too: The NBA has a vested interest in having a competitive Game 5 in Oakland, whether or not the Rockets can extend it to a Game 6.
So what do I expect Thorn to do? And how will that news be, ahem, announced?
The answers come in this podcast with Newy Scruggs on NBCSports Radio early Tuesday morning.

Men can be disrespectful of women and this happens for many reasons. What I can't understand is why ? Most of us have mothers sisters nieces cousins. So why the unethical behavior towards women . Men need to do some soul searching. We continue devalue the role of women in our lives in every aspect. I

Vs. 8, Then Pharaoh called for Moses amd Aaron, and said, entreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people, and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD.
Vs. 9. And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me, when shall I entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only ?
Vs. 10. And he said To morrow, And he said be it according to thy Word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.
Vs. 11. And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.
