Rasheed Wallace has latest tech rescinded

As mentioned in the Clippers' game thread (thanks, erin), the league has rescinded Rasheed Wallace's latest technical. This means that he's still at 14 for the year, two away from an automatic one-game suspension. From Chris McCosky in the Detroit News:

"The way the rule states, players are allowed some emotional outburst, a quick response," said coach Flip Saunders, who got the news at about 5:30 p.m. Monday. "As long as they don't carry on."

Wallace did not carry on Saturday. He was miffed at a call by referee Courtney Kirkland, immediately ran away from him and lightly tossed the ball to referee Scott Foster. Kirkland called the tech.

It is the second technical foul on Wallace the league has rescinded. One was called back earlier this season against Houston.
