The Washington Wizards’ 106-93 win over the Milwaukee Bucks left the visitors with a bitter taste in their mouths. A frustrated Larry Sanders was tossed out of the game after giving all three referees a sarcastic and hilarious thumbs-up. Per the Journal Sentinel: “Bucks’ frustrations boiled over as center Larry Sanders was ejected with 2:45 left in the game after being called for a charging foul. Sanders gave the thumbs-up sign to all three officials – Bennie Adams, Kevin Cutler and Bennett Salvatore – and was given the heave-ho by Salvatore. ‘I really want to win,’ Sanders said of his response. ‘I want to gain some momentum going into the playoffs and seal our position. I felt like we fought hard but we didn’t play our best. There were a lot of things I was frustrated with.’ It was Sanders’ third ejection of the season after being tossed out of games in Miami in November and in Portland in January.”
