Barea's foul reduced to a flagrant 1, but lip-reading is the real fun

J.J. Barea's foul on Ray Allen last night was originally ruled a flagrant 1, was reviewed last night and called a flagrant 2 (with ejection) and then today was dropped back down to a flagrant 1 by the NBA. That doesn't do the Wolves much good in the context of their loss to the Heat -- the play changed momentum, though we imagine the Heat would have won anyway -- but at least Barea has been somewhat vindicated and the correct call has been made.

If you are into lip-reading, however, you might be interested in what Barea had to say to Allen as he was walking off the court last night. Barea described it postgame as basketball talk. Here is the link to the video clip.
