With 2 minutes and 28 seconds left for the second quarter to end Jimmy Butler was ejected from the game with two quick technical fouls for getting in the face of a official and complaining while yelling “call the f***ing foul!”. The first technical was issued by the ref he abused but the second which felt undeserved was issued by another official near the lines as Jimmy yelled out loud “motherf****r”. This too quick chain of events got him called off from the game. In his time on the court which is approximately 15 minutes he contributed by dropping 4 points, 3 assists and 3 rebounds.
