Jermaine O’Neal Flagrant Foul Rescinded, Paul Pierce Spared Suspension in Aftermath of Game 1

As expected, the Celtics sent a lot of game film to the league office on Sunday evening, in the wake of their 99-90 loss to the Heat on Game 1 at American Airlines Arena. And this time, they got results.

After a league concluded a review of all the potential technical and flagrant fouls in Sunday's action, here's a rundown of their rulings:

Jermaine O'Neal did not commit a flagrant foul when he hit James Jones with a hard shoulder late in the third quarter. His flagrant 1 call his been rescinded.

– Both of the two double technical fouls called against Paul Pierce in the fourth quarter, one with Jones and the other with Dwyane Wade, will stand.

– Jones' technical for the Pierce altercation is rescinded.

– Pierce will not be suspended for his scuffle with Jones in which it appeared he may have headbutted the Heat forward.

LeBron James will not be suspended for leaving the bench after the second-quarter technical foul called on Delonte West.

Both teams should have their full rosters available for Game 2 on Tuesday night. In the playoffs, that's the way it should be.
