Eric Bledsoe ejected for pair of technical fouls – after drawing foul on Hawks (video)

Eric Bledsoe got the call in his favor – and then two technical fouls and an ejection.

Was Bledsoe complaining about a previous call? It’s hardly uncommon for a player to mouth off after getting a call he felt he deserved earlier in the game.

Was he complaining about which refer blew the whistle? That’s not unheard of, but it’s a bit silly to get too worked up about that.

Whatever his issue after Pero Antic’s foul, Bledsoe didn’t complain long and still got two techs. Maybe what he said was just that egregious.

I’m not saying it’s the case here, but Bledsoe wouldn’t be the first player who wanted an early exit from a late-season game with his team effectively out of the playoff race. With their 96-69 loss to the Hawks tonight, the Suns move one step closer to official elimination.
