Kidd ejected in Bucks loss to Kings
Jason Kidd was ejected late in the fourth quarter of the Bucks' 129-118 loss to Sacramento Wednesday night.
Kidd, unhappy with the lack of fouls called against the Bucks during the game, swatted as a ball held by referee Zach Zarba during a time out. Zarba gave Kidd a technical foul and kicked him out of the game. Reports from the arena say there was also a scuffle in the hallway, and that Bucks player O.J. Mayo was escorted to his car by teammates.
Kidd said he was protecting his players by showing his emotion to Zarba. Kings coach and former Bucks leader George Karl also drew a technical foul during the game. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton led the Bucks in the losing effort with 21 points each.
