Basketball Ejections: Scott Foster (1)
Crew Chief Scott Foster ejected Mavericks forward Lamar Odom for arguing an offensive foul call during the 3rd Quarter of the Heat-Mavericks Christmas Day season opener game. With 5:06 remaining in the 3rd, Odom was called for an offensive foul on Heat forward LeBron James. Replays indicate that Odom drove into the lane and passed out to Mavericks Guard Jason Terry outside the 3-point arc along the baseline. As Odom passed out to Terry, he crashed into James, who appeared to have obtained legal guarding position. Odom shouted towards Foster, after Foster reported the offensive foul call and was subsequently charged with a technical foul by Foster. Odom then became increasingly unsportsmanlike towards Foster and received a second technical foul from Foster, and with it an ejection. At the time of Odom's ejection, the Heat were leading, 82-54. The Heat ultimately won the contest, 105-94.
This is Scott Foster (48)'s first ejection of the 2011-12 season.
This is the first ejection of of the NBA 2011-12 season.
This is Lamar Odom's first ejection of the 2011-12 season.
This is Lamar Odom's second consecutive ejection in a non-preseason game.
Odom was ejected in his 2010-2011 NBA season finale in the 2011 playoffs with the Los Angeles Lakers for a flagrant foul against Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. Odom was ejected by Scott Foster in that game.
