It seemed as though nothing was going right for the Boston Celtics Monday night in their 109-94 loss to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. That included Jayson Tatum, who finished the game with just 14 points on 6-of-18 shooting and 1-of-9 from three.
The frustration showed for Tatum throughout the game. He picked up his first technical foul arguing a call late in the third quarter. Then later in the game he took issue with what he thought was a foul on a three-point attempt, and continued to argue his case down the other end of the floor. For that he was assessed his second technical and with it an automatic ejection – the first ejection of his NBA career.
