Trevor Ariza Ejected from Blazers-Jazz

Ariza sent to the showers after two quick technical fouls.

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Portland Trail Blazers Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Ariza picked up two quick technical fouls for strenuously arguing a no-call during the Portland Trail Blazers - Utah Jazz game on Friday night. Ariza was five feet from the basket and going up for the shot when a Utah player came up from behind and made contact with the back of his legs with his hip. As play continued in the other direction after the missed shot, Ariza chased after the ref, getting an immediate technical. No satisfied, he went back for more, earning the second T in a matter of seconds.

Ariza may have been especially upset about the no-call after Anfernee Simons was undercut minutes earlier without a foul being called, leading to a concussion for Anfernee when the back of his head struck the court after falling.
