Kendrick Perkins is 31-years old and playing 12-minutes a night for a very bad New Orleans Pelicans team. His time existing on an NBA roster because he can help a team is well over, but he can still try to hurt people.
Last night he did just that when Damian Lillard drove past him in the 4th quarter. Perkins hit Lillard around the neck with a sort of clothesline tackle that put the point guard on the floor. Mason Plumlee wanted to have words with the Pelicans center, but teammates kept them separated. Perkins was given a flagrant-2 and ejected. Lillard finished with 33 points in a Blazers win.
