PHOENIX (AP) -Shaquille O'Neal was ejected from Sunday night's game between the Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons for a flagrant foul.
The call came with 5:19 left in the second quarter when Rodney Stuckey went up for a layup and O'Neal sent the Pistons' player chest-first onto the court. The flagrant foul two, which is an automatic ejection, was upheld after a review by the officials.
O'Neal stayed on the court to argue vehemently before finally leaving.
Stuckey made both free throws to cut Phoenix's lead to 58-35. O'Neal left the game with 12 points, 10 in the second quarter.
