CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson has been ejected late in the second quarter against Boston for picking up consecutive technical fouls.
After Jackson complained about being called for a foul on Kevin Garnett, referee Kane Fitzgerald hit him with a technical. Jackson continued to complain and referee Mark Ayotte ejected him with a second technical before play resumed Monday night.
It marked his second ejection this season.
The volatile Jackson has already been suspended for a game and fined $50,000 for separate incidents involving officials this season.
Jackson has reached 13 technical fouls on the season, not including one that was later rescinded by the league. That leaves him three shy of an automatic one-game suspension.
