PORTLAND, Ore. — Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala was ejected from Saturday night’s 115-105 win over the Portland Trail Blazers for a “hostile act” after he tossed the ball about 20 rows into the stands after the buzzer sounded at the end of the first half.Iguodala was assessed a technical foul and was ejected…
Iguodala was assessed a technical foul and was ejected after a video review by officials.
The sequence in question occurred after Iguodala tried to gain control of the ball as the final seconds of the first half rolled off the clock. Iguodala was unable to corral the ball until the buzzer sounded and the lights on the floor went off. After an extra second, he got the ball and flung it about 20 rows deep into the stands in frustration.
The Warriors left the floor and headed to the locker room as Blazers coaches argued with the officials about Iguodala’s play. Officials went over to the monitor to review the play and decided to eject Iguodala.
