Jazz C Hassan Whiteside Ejected In First Quarter Against Thunder
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz center Hassan Whiteside was ejected late in the first quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday evening.
Hassan Whiteside missed a layup late in the first quarter and got his own rebound and got the putback to go. As he started going down the floor, Whiteside yelled “and one” to official Marc Davis.
Davis quickly assessed two technical fouls to Whiteside and he was ejected from the game.
Seems like the Jazz already have more ejections this season in just 18 games than in most previous full seasons.
