Remember last week when referee Tre Maddox called a tech on Russell Westbrook for hitting him with the ball? During the Thunder’s easy win over the Bulls on Monday night, Enes Kanter, standing at the free throw line, jokingly called a tech on a ref after the ref threw a ball at him before he was ready for it. The ref responded by ejecting him! I’m kidding about the ejection but if it was Westbrook, we might be talking about a suspension and I don’t mean Coach Mike K type suspension.
Besides the funny free throw moment, Kanter had a pretty nice game, finishing with 20 points (9 for 11 shooting) and 11 boards off the bench.
