 CLEVELAND (AP) -Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace was ejected from Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night after getting called for two technical fouls, and would have been suspended if there was a Game 7.
Wallace was called for a fifth foul for blatantly grabbing LeBron James in the lane, then he was called for a technical because he seemed to still be complaining about an offensive foul that was called against him on the previous possession.
Wallace had to be restrained by teammates as he charged toward official Eddie Rush, who ejected him from the court with another technical.
``I just get sick and tired of that cheating out there - all that flopping,'' Wallace said after Cleveland beat Detroit 98-82. ``That's not defense, and I hope the league do something about it for that next series.''
That was Wallace's seventh technical foul of the postseason, resulting in a $2,500 fine and a one-game suspension.
Wallace was flailing his arms and hands toward Rush as he was pushed off the court by teammates and toward the locker room.
