New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis ejected for first time in career
From NBA Twitter and media reports
New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis was ejected from Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after being assessed two technical fouls in the first half.
Davis received a technical with 4:26 left in the second quarter for arguing no-calls on his shots. Fifteen seconds later he picked up his second technical after getting called for a foul while trying to block Karl-Anthony Towns.
Davis was leading all scorers with 17 points to go along with five rebounds.
The Wolves finished the half on a 17-6 run and cruised to a 120-102 victory.
It was the first career ejection for Davis, who was so incensed that he had to be restrained by teammates.
Following the game, crew chief Ken Mauer explained his decision to eject Davis:
