Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah ejected for skirmish (Video)
Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah were among four ejected from the New York Knicks-Chicago Bulls game on Friday night. Chandler and Noah got into it with under five minutes remaining in the game and the Knicks trailing 97-81. The two were fighting for position under the basket and exchanged some pushes before the referees separated them. Double-technicals were handed out on the play.
In addition to Chandler and Noah, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and coach Mike Woodson were both tossed from the contest. Melo was ejected after picking up his second technical foul when he slapped at a ball in Noah’s hands a few minutes earlier in the game. Woodson was ejected after receiving his second technical foul less than a minute before the Chandler-Noah incident.
Noah had 15 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists in 41 minutes at the time of his ejection. Chandler had just five points and eight rebounds in 34 minutes, while Anthony had 29 points in the 110-106 loss.
