Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard slapped Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut in the face in response to Bogut's physical play during the third quarter of Monday night's Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.

Howard caught Bogut across the face with his forearm at the 8:06 mark of the third quarter with his team leading 75–64. He was called for a Flagrant 1 foul, which is administered for unnecessary, hard contact against an offensive player. 

Bogut missed both resulting free throws.

The foul was administered by the always flamboyant Joey Crawford
