Iguodala tossed after ball heave deemed ‘hostile’

PORTLAND, Ore. — Golden State Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala was ejected from Saturday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers for a ‘hostile act’ after tossing the ball about 20 rows deep into the stands after the buzzer went at the end of the first half.

Iguodala was assessed a technical foul and was ejected after a video review by officials.

The sequence in question occurred after Iguodala tried to gain control of the ball as the final seconds of the first half rolled off the clock. Iguodala was unable to corral the ball until the buzzer sounded and the lights on the floor went off. After an extra second, Iguodala got the ball and flung the ball about 20 rows deep into the stands out of frustration.

The Warriors left the floor and headed to the locker room as Blazers coaches argued with the officials about Iguodala’s play. Officials went over to the monitor to review the play and ultimately decided to eject Iguodala.
