Bobcats Guard Stephen Jackson Ejected in Second Quarter Against Celtics

Bobcats' Jackson ejected, reaches 13 technicals

      CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Charlotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson
has been ejected late in the second quarter against Boston for
picking up consecutive technical fouls.
      After Jackson complained about being called for a foul on Kevin
Garnett, referee Kane Fitzgerald hit him with a technical. Jackson
continued to complain and referee Mark Ayotte ejected him with a
second technical before play resumed Monday night.
      It marked his second ejection this season.
      The volatile Jackson has already been suspended for a game and
fined $50,000 for separate incidents involving officials this
season.
      Jackson has reached 13 technical fouls on the season, not
including one that was later rescinded by the league. That leaves
him three shy of an automatic one-game suspension.
