Paul Pierce ejected in Wizards home opener

New, comments

Pierce was ejected with 6.6 seconds to go in the first half of his first home game as a Wizards. Welcome to D.C., I guess?

Well, that was fast.

Paul Pierce was ejected with 6.6 seconds to go in the first half of the Wizards' home opener against the Milwaukee Bucks. The crowd was not pleased.

The ejection stemmed from Pierce being called for a clear path foul. After an offsite review, the ruling on the floor was confirmed. Technical number one.

Once the ruling was confirmed and the Bucks shot their free throws, Pierce was none-too-pleased. The referee was also none-too-pleased with Pierce's arguing, and gave him his second technical.

Two technicals = ejection. In Pierce's first regular season home game as a Wizard. With 6.6 seconds to go in the first half. At least he got a good send-off.

And I guess I maaaay have spoken too soon when I said this earlier in the half.

Whoops.
