Hump finished with 6 points, and 8 rebounds.
Sully has been hurting, and in Denver who was ejected. Tonight, a day after Sully was ejected. Sullinger picked up his 5th flagrant foul.One more he's suspended for a game. The league took a flagrant foul off his total, after they felt the first one in Denver wasn't a hard foul.
