By Chris Forsberg
ESPN ScreenshotLike Celtics coach Doc Rivers before him, forward Kevin Garnett earned an early exit after being tagged with a pair of technical fouls and earning an automatic ejection with 4:07 remaining in regulation.
Kevin Garnett reacts in disbelief after being ejected vs. Phoenix.
Tempers flared after Garnett caught Phoenix's Channing Frye with a low-blow trying to box out after an errant 3-pointer. Frye took exception and a scrum ensued as the two were separated (Boston players, including fill-in coach Lawrence Frank spilling off the bench to defuse the situation).
Garnett and Frye were hit with double technicals, but Garnett earned another technical and was ejected. Teammates Nate Robinson and Kendrick Perkins also got tagged with technicals after referees used video replay to assess the dust-up.
