CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Bulls guard Aaron Brooks was ejected in the second quarter of Tuesday night's game with the Brooklyn Nets after picking up two technical fouls.

With the Bulls players heading toward the bench following a timeout with 9:42 remaining in the first half, Brooks picked up the first technical from official David Guthrie for bouncing the ball hard back onto the court.

At that point, Brooks turned and said something to Guthrie. The official then called the second technical, resulting in the automatic ejection.
