New York (AP) -- Rasheed Wallace picked up two technical fouls and was ejected for the first time since returning to the NBA in the first quarter of the Knicks' game Sunday against Phoenix.
Wallace played only 1:25 off the bench before apparently getting upset after fouling Luis Scola. He was called for a first technical, then hit with the second and an automatic ejection after yelling "Ball don't lie!" -- his way of saying the call was wrong -- toward an official after Scola missed the free throw.
It was Wallace's 30th career ejection, according to STATS, LLC. The temperamental forward has been called for more than 300 techs in his career, leading the league seven times, though he said before the season he was more mellow now after a two-year retirement.
