Kyrie Irving and Dennis Schroder on Saturday were ejected for what was believed to be the first time in each of their careers. So what transpired that led to their ejections? Many were wondering that.
The ejection took place early in the third quarter of Saturday’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers, which was missing many star players.
Irving and Schroder began arguing over foul calls and got face-to-face with each other, which led to them getting technical fouls. Then, Irving was assessed a second technical foul for taunting. Schroder got a second as well for taunting Irving by waving at the Brooklyn guard after the ejection.

Irving did not speak with reporters after the game, unsurprisingly. Schroder did and said he apologized to his teammates for getting tossed. Schroder was also unsure why he was actually ejected.
Dennis Schroder said he apologized to his teammates for getting tossed. He didn’t realize he got an initial tech with Kyrie, and thinks he got the second for waving bye after Kyrie got tossed.

The Lakers still smashed the Nets 126-101 even though they were playing without LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Newcomers Ben McLemore and Andre Drummond had big games for the Lakers.
