Nikola Vucevic received a technical foul for fouling LeBron James in the Bulls’ win over the Lakers.
The Montenegrin center did not agree with the call by the referees and was immediately given a second technical foul and was ejected late in the second quarter.
His teammate Zach LaVine thought that the ejection was crazy, especially since it happened so early in the game.
Via K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports:
“It was a crazy ejection because the guy that gave him the (second) tech didn’t even call the foul on him. Tony came across the court and threw him out,” Zach LaVine said. “I wasn’t there to understand it but it’s tough to throw a guy out in the second quarter of the game. We picked him up. It’s part of basketball.”
