Grizzlies guard Ja Morant ejected for ‘questioning the integrity of the officials’.

Many Memphis Grizzlies and basketball fans expressed their astonishment on social media when Ja Morant was dismissed near the end of the first half on Saturday.

Crew chief referee John Goble gave an explanation for why Morant received both of his technical fouls in a pool report following the game. Late in the second quarter, Morant received his first technical foul as he tried to snag a pass and looked angry that a foul had been called

.Morant was given a technical foul, according to Goble, for cursing at an official.

The most contentious technical was the second one, which resulted in Morant’s ejection. With 42.3 seconds remained in the second quarter, the officials dismissed Morant for what seemed to be a chat with a spectator.

Morant received his second technical foul for raising concerns about the impartiality of the officials, according to Goble.

With seven technical fouls this season, Morant is now tied for fourth in the NBA. Dillon Brooks, who also had a technical in the second quarter, has eight penalties and is third in the league.
