Chicago Bulls center Robin Lopez was ejected on Monday night. He was ejected in the second quarter against the Sacramento Kings.
He picked up two technical fouls. Then, after being ejected, he decided to go after the officials, before being restrained by his teammates and coaches.
Lopez was still angry, as he went into the tunnel. There he threw a chair on his way to the locker room. He had two points, one rebound, and one assist in 13 minutes prior to his ejection.
At the 4:21 mark in the second quarter, Lopez was seen arguing with official Justin Van Duyne. He was not happy for being called for a foul against Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein.
Lopez was reportedly not happy for a missed call on the possession before when he thought he should have been called for a foul against him.
As he was walking towards midcourt, he was hit with his first technical. Van Duyne then hit Lopez with another technical, then had to be held back from getting into a physical confrontation.
The Bulls are now without Lopez and Lauri Markkanen, who has missed his third straight game with the birth of his child. He was supposed to play tonight, but due to the weather in Chicago, he had to cancel his flight.
