It's not unecessary contact, it's a foul because he hit him during the act of shooting while he was in a legal guarding position, but it's as part of a basketball play

Again from NBA.com

Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1, offensive player leads with elbow to opponent's face Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1, offensive player leads with elbow to opponent's face. “This is an example of a Flagrant Foul, Penalty 1.

It is the literal rule

Note that after call most of first half super lightly they now are calling touch fouls all over.

Such an awful officiating crew. It's totally uneven, and totally inconsistent.

"Butler and Bam are 7 for 10,495,942! Looking good for them!"

Celtics are shooting 20% from 3 and Tatum hasn't scored this half. Any regression to the means there?
