BOSTON - It was an early night for Washington Wizards head coach Flip Saunders, who was ejected from the game after receiving two technical fouls for grabbing an official and chasing him out onto the court in his team's game against the Boston Celtics on Monday night at TD Garden.
Saunders, who was apparently upset about a non-foul call on a Greg Stiemsma block of a Wizards' three-pointer, became irate with an official and follow him all the way out to center court, where the referees assessed him two technical fouls.
The Wizards weren't done with the technicals, either, finishing the first quarter with four total. After Saunders was assessed two, Wizards star point guard John Wall was T'd up after a dunk for slamming the ball in Stiemsma's face. The team was also assessed a technical foul for a defensive three seconds violation.
