NBA fans were not happy with the officiating during the Clippers-Mavs playoff game.
During the third quarter of game 1, Kristaps Porzingis was ejected for getting his second technical foul after he got into a shoving match with Marcus Morris.
Luka, KP, and Marcus Morris share a moment. 👀

Porzingis had gotten a tech earlier in the game for complaining to referees about a foul call.

The NBA: Our Ratings are down, what do we do?
The NBA Refs: Lets eject Star Players in Playoff Games for things other Star Players do all the time.

I hope the NBA sends a memo to these refs to remind them that guys have to do something truly egregious to get elected from emotionally-charged playoff games. Dudes shouldn't get T'd up for hollering "BS!" Kristap Porzingis shouldn't have been tossed for a passionate reaction

I've tweeted this 10 times before but I just need to say it again
