Golden State Warriors backup point guard Shaun Livingston was ejected in the second quarter for making contact with his head with an official. Livingston is normally a calm, level-headed guy, but for some reason he lost it after getting a no call on this jumper, and had to let the ref know.
Unfortunately for Livingston, referee Courtney Kirkland was having absolutely none of his arguments, especially after the slight headbutt, and sent Livingston packing, sending him home for the rest of the game.
The ejection was the second of Livingston’s career. The other came in Game 4 of the 2016 Western Conference semifinals in Portland.
The Warriors ended up winning the game even without Livingston pretty handily, 123-85 being the final score.
What do you think? Did Livingston deserve the quick ejection? Or did the ref overreact to the situation? Let us know in the comments below.
