ESPN Broadcast ScreenshotJared Sullinger got tagged with a flagrant-1 for wrapping up Gerald Wallace on his way to the hoop on Christmas Day.
Jared Sullinger got tagged with two flagrant-1 fouls during the four-game road trip to close out 2012, picking them up for hard fouls on Brooklyn's Gerald Wallace and Los Angeles' Blake Griffin while trying to prevent easy buckets.

Upon video review, the league downgraded the latter of those two calls, according to a league spokesman.

Sullinger now only has one flagrant point this season. That's somewhat important as a player that exceeds five flagrant points during the regular season is subject to an automatic suspension.

Rajon Rondo and Jason Collins also have one flagrant point apiece this season.
