16th tech to cost Howard one-game suspension


Posted Mar 4 2011 9:07PM

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard faces a one-game suspension after picking up his 16th technical foul of the season.

Howard, who leads the NBA in technicals this season, was whistled for another one with 1:41 left in the first half Friday night against Chicago. If the call is upheld following a review by the league, Howard would be suspended for Orlando's next game against Portland on Monday night.

With the Bulls leading 43-29, the Howard was hit on the top of his head by Kyle Korver as Howard came down with an offensive rebound.

Korver was whistled for a foul, but took a swipe at the ball moments after the play. That prompted Howard to swing his elbows. Referee Ed Malloy stepped in to separate them and also called a technical on Howard.

The Bulls led 49-35 at halftime.
