O.J. Mayo ejected for punch to throat of Greg Stiemsma (Video)
It’s been a rough season for Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo. His 12.1 points per game is the second-lowest output in his six seasons as an NBA player. Mayo’s 40.2% shooting from the floor is the worst of his career. And, the Bucks are last in the Eastern Conference with a 12-48 record.
O.J. Mayo’s forgettable season turned ugly during Friday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. After attempting to fight through a screen set by Greg Stiemsma, Mayo retaliated with a punch to his throat area.
Not surprisingly, Mayo was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, which carries an automatic ejection. He can probably expect to hear from the league office as well.
