NBA Ejections (2): Scott Foster, Rodney Mott, Sean Wright

Referees Scott Foster (crew chief), Rodney Mott (R) and Sean Wright (R2/umpire) ejected Bulls guard Joakim Noah and forward Taj Gibson for second technical fouls in the 4th quarter of the Bulls-Heat game. With 0:11.6 remaining in the 1st quarter, Noah received his first technical foul as part of a double technical foul sequence for unsporting argument actions with Heat forward LeBron James. With 10:13 remaining in the 4th period, Bulls guard Marquis Teague was called for a shooting foul; Noah and Gibson then proceeded to display overt actions indicating resentment to the call, resulting in Noah's second technical foul and Gibson's first. Gibson continued to violate the NBA Respect for the Game guidelines and was administered his second technical foul and disqualification. At the time of the ejections, the Heat were leading, 93-56. The Heat ultimately won the contest, 115-78.
