Dwight Howard had his night ended early after he picked up his second technical of the night.
The Houston Rockets are taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night in a battle of two Eastern Conference teams, although the Rockets will have to go a good portion of the second half without one of their stars, Dwight Howard.
Yes, you probably guessed it — Howard was ejected.
In the third quarter of this one after a play under the basket, Howard was coming down the floor and he was really giving the business to the referee. He was really letting him have it, and it seems that he said something he really shouldn’t have to the official, because he was sent packing for the night with his second technical foul now under his belt.
Dwight Howard was just T’d up for a 2nd time and has been tossed

Well, it’s not the first time that Howard has been sent out early from the game and, sadly, it probably will not be the last.
What’s even worse is that Howard picked up this ejection as the game was rather close, so this really did nothing to help the team in their quest to pick up a much needed win.
Although, it’s not like he was helping all that much to begin with.
So, maybe it’s not all that bad.
