Devin Booker's controversial ejection mars Suns' statement win over Lakers

0


The Phoenix Suns were the hottest topic in the NBA world Tuesday night, but it wasn’t for the biggest win of their breakthrough season.

Devin Booker’s controversial ejection midway through the third quarter overshadowed the Suns’ 114-104 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. Instead of a statement win over the defending champs being the center of attention, the spotlight shined on Booker and the officials’ quick whistle.

Booker was hit with two technical fouls in rapid succession with 7:10 left in the third quarter after the Suns were called for a shooting foul against LeBron James. Booker appeared to say something to referee Tyler Ford, who called the first technical. A moment later, referee Justin Van Duyne assessed the second technical and ejected Booker, who left the court in disbelief.
