Boston Celtics center Al Horford scraps with Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard shoves Al Horford, then gets ejected for hanging on the rim

Instead he swerved at the last second, dished his jersey to a Hawks fan, and left this woman looking extra sour.

Atlanta Hawks centre Dwight Howard was ejected from an away match against the Celtics for hanging onto the ring for too long after a dunk.

The league said the technical foul should have been ruled "non-unsportsmanlike" and should not have counted toward an automatic ejection.

Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer knew that stopping the Boston Celtics hinged on making things hard for Isaiah Thomas. In addition to scoring 17 points and grabbing 12 rebounds, he got into a tussle with Boston's Al Horford, got ejected after picking up a second technical foul for hanging on the rim - a decision the National Basketball Association later said was made in error - and took a moment to troll a Celtics fan on his way to the locker room.

"I wish I could have played a little bit more, but it felt good to be out there", Bradley said after the loss. Howard was still able to tally 17 points and 12 boards in the 28 minutes he played. "You have those, and we played Toronto and they showed two or three guys, I can't run through the whole team". After the game, he said he apologized to his teammates for not "doing a better job of keeping [his] composure".

And in Conte's eyes, the Spaniard's contribution confirmed the options he has available in central midfield. They are deserving this. "Every day I see them during the training sessions, the commitment and behaviour".

"I wish it was split up for the second half, but it is what it is".

The NBA said in a statement later Monday that Howard should not have been tossed for hanging on the rim.

Thomas connected on late jumper to beat the Hawks in the first meeting between the teams last month.

"We're not gonna hit every shot every game", said Jaylen Brown, who shot 6-for-10 to add 15 points.

Dwight Howard took no prisoners in Monday night's game against the Celtics. "In the second half they played harder than us".
