Was that really worthy of an ejection? A warning, sure. A technical foul works if the officials feel Howard was warned before or was escalating.
A lot of quick triggers on officials around the NBA recently.
As for the game, Danny Green reminded his former Lakers teammates he can contribute, scoring 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting, hitting a dagger three late, and helping lift the 76ers to a 109-101 win. Philly is now 6-1 without Joel Embiid.
