One player went straight to the deck; the other went straight to the showers.
Sacramento Kings forward Thomas Robinson was ejected during the fourth quarter of a Wednesday night game against the Detroit Pistons for intentionally throwing an elbow to the throat of Jonas Jerebko. The foul, deemed a flagrant foul two, occurred with just less than 10 minutes remaining.
Robinson, who departed the game with two points and seven rebounds in 12 minutes, could face disciplinary action, including a fine and/or suspension, from the NBA league office for the unsportsmanlike and dangerous play.
After the game, Robinson apologized on Twitter: “Apologize for my actions mistakes happen I take full responsibility lost my cool will never happen again!”
