Evan Turner had to watch his Boston Celtics lose in heartbreaking fashion to the Toronto Raptors from the locker room – the refs kicked Turner out after he tossed a ball at one of them in the third quarter.
Turner already had a technical foul assessed to him before he lightly flicked the rock at the official, earning an automatic ejection.
As the wing made his way off the court, he continued to run his mouth.
Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said he “got a sense” of what Turner said. […] “But you’d have to ask him,” the coach said.
Was the ejection earned? […] “I thought so,” Stevens nodded.
