Kevin Ding's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Shaq, Horry and everyone else will be glad to know Dwight got in some fun faux fighting with Raptors' little ...
mascot during pregame warmups. So the day wasn't a total lost cause for Dwight, ejected with a second technical foul 1:18 before halftime in Toronto. By all accounts, it was strange call by ref Eli Roe on Dwight, slightly tangled up with Raptors swingman Alan Anderson, that prompted the ejection. Ref Sean Corbin brought Roe over to huddle about it before the call wound up standing.
The double technical fouls prompted Howard's ejection because he got a tech with 4:43 left in the first quarter for arguing non-calls with ref Kenny Mauer. Howard was upset he didn't get the whistle on repeated previous plays.
Last time Howard was ejection (Dec. 26 at DEN), he was having a bad game -- and the Lakers failed to rally behind Dwight's flagrant foul to Kenneth Faried's face.
