Howard's foul upgraded to flagrant
The NBA made the announcement Wednesday.
Howard grabbed a rebound with 6:25 remaining in the third quarter and swung his elbow, knocking Garnett in the face. That is Howard's second flagrant of the playoffs; two more and he will be suspended for one game.
The Celtics led the Magic 3-1 entering Wednesday night's game.
