Kentavious Caldwell-Pope picked up his 2nd and 3rd technical fouls of the season on Monday afternoon against the Chicago Bulls, earning him his first career ejection:
KCP just picked up his 2nd T and he's kicked out of the game .. Objected to a foul call.— Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) January 18, 2016
By almost all accounts, the calls have been bullshit, causing KCP to kick a chair on his way out, but the Pistons are letting it get to them a little bit too much:
KCP ejected. Entirely too much jawing at officials tonight from #Pistons. Three Ts tonight.— Vincent Ellis (@Vincent_Ellis56) January 18, 2016
You can watch the ejection here.
Andre Drummond has the Pistons' third tech.
KCP picked up his first tech when he slammed the ball into the ground after being called for a travel. KCP had 12 points on 13 shots and five rebounds offensively before getting sent to the showers. He was largely responsible for guarding Jimmy Butler (15 points on 5-for-11 shooting, 9 assists and 5 turnovers) on the defensive end.
The Pistons trail the Bulls 83-79 going into the fourth quarter.
