SEATTLE (AP) -Kobe Bryant was ejected during the third quarter of Sunday night's game in Seattle after picking up a pair of technical fouls while the Los Angeles Lakers led by 31 points.
Bryant was given his first technical by Brian Forte with 4 minutes left in the quarter after Bryant complained about a foul not being called as he chased an offensive rebound. Forte retreated into backcourt, but Bryant followed, continuing his complaints.
Moments later, Forte handed Bryant a second technical and an early trip to the locker room.
The Lakers led 88-57 at the time. It was the first ejection this season for Bryant, who had 21 points and 10 rebounds.
