Warriors' Davis Ejected From Game 2 vs Mavs
With just 0.2 seconds left in the third quarter of Game 2 against Dallas, Golden State Warriors guard Baron Davis was ejected. In the fourth quarter Davis was joined by team mate Stephen Jackson. Both received two technical fouls.
Both Jackson and Davis received their first technical foul halfway through the third quarter during an incident that started with Mavericks guard Jason Terry first bumping into Jackson and followed by Davis.
Davis had got two personal fouls early in the game and he did not receive another one till the third quarter. After the first technical, he got two personal fouls minutes apart and then received his fifth personal foul after he collided mid air with Jerry Stackhouse while defending him in the final second of the quarter.
When this happened, Davis jumped up with anger and teammate Al Harrington immediately grabbed Davis' waistband to pull him back with the hopes of calming him down. Davis went over to the bench smiling and clapping. Coach Don Nelson even told him to calm down but official Bennett Salvatore brave Davis his second technical which automatically calls for ejection.
At the point when Davis was directed he had 13 points, 2 assists and 1 rebound. The Warriors were trailing at that point 87-74. In Game 1 Davis had 33 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists, a game that the Golden State Warriors won.
Jackson did not last too long after Davis was ejected. He was directed in the fourth quarter when 4:34 were left in the game. Jackson said something that got him ejected from the game but his reaction after that was not at admirable. Most of Jackson's anger was directed at official Sean Corbin and teammate Matt Barnes tried stopping the tirade first with his arm and then with a towel as he led Jackson to the locker room.
