With the Celtics mounting a comeback in the third quarter, Kemba Walker was ejected after getting floored on a screen by LaMarcus Aldridge. Once down 21 points, Boston had whittled it down to seven after a 15-4 run after halftime until this happened:

Brad Stevens also received a technical after coming to Walker’s defense. The ejection was the first in Kemba Walker’s eight-year career. He finished the game with six points and four assists after missing the last three games with the flu.
