Ejections: Stafford/Zarba/Blair & Crawford/Poole/Twardoski
Referees Derrick Stafford (crew chief), Zach Zarba (R) and Curtis Blair (R2/umpire) ejected Bucks guard Brandon Jennings for a technical foul during the 4th quarter of the Bulls-Bucks game. With 2:54 remaining in the 4th period, Jennings was called for an offensive foul after extending his off-arm into an opposing player while in possession of the ball. After the call, Jennings threw the basketball at official Stafford and aggressively approached the crew chief, drawing a single technical foul and ejection. At the time of the ejection, the Bulls were leading, 94-84. The Bulls ultimately won the contest, 104-88.
This is Derrick Stafford (9)'s second ejection of the 2012-13 NBA season.
This is Zach Zarba (28)'s eighth involvement with an ejection of the 2012-13 NBA season.
This is Curtis Blair (74)'s third involvement with an ejection of the 2012-13 NBA season and 2nd of Jennings.

Referees Dan Crawford (crew chief), Olandis Poole (R) and Scott Twardoski (R2/umpire) ejected Clippers forward Matt Barnes for a flagrant foul penalty two during the 2nd quarter of the Clippers-Timberwolves game. With 8:26 remaining in the 2nd period, Barnes was whistled for a flagrant foul type two after he appeared to throw an elbow into the head/neck area of Timberwolves center Greg Stiemsma, actions ruled excessive and unnecessary and meriting of an automatic ejection. At the time of the ejection, the Timberwolves were leading, 32-25. The Clippers ultimately won the contest, 96-90.
This is Dan Crawford (43)'s fourth ejection of the 2012-13 NBA season.
This is Olandis Poole (50)'s fifth involvement with an ejection of the 2012-13 NBA season.
