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.
WHOA! PIERCE GOT 2 TECHS AND IS NOW EJECTED. BOOOOOOOOOO— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) November 2, 2014
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.
Pierce gets a standing ovation on his way to the locker room after his ejection.— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) November 2, 2014
And I guess I maaaay have spoken too soon when I said this earlier in the half.
Pierce's ref-complaining is in peak veteran form. That's something this team has very much lacked.— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) November 2, 2014
