Video: Larry Sanders loses his mind, gets ejected after scuffle with Pacers

By Ben Golliver | Blogger
Thursday night's game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers had all sorts of chippiness. Mike Dunleavy, Jr. and Tyler Hansbrough got into it. Larry Sanders was whistled for a technical and wouldn't relent as David West prodded him down the stretch.

Push came to shove with less than four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, as Sanders ran over Danny Granger will trying to play defense in the paint. Already fired up, Sanders let off some steam in the direction of an official, got whistled for a second technical foul and then started barking at Pacers guard George Hill. The exchange led Granger and West to stand up for their teammate, a concept which did not appeal to Sanders, who pointed his finger in the face of West before being restrained by referees and teammates.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel got in the mix to calm things down, but then Sanders went running around in a large, looping circle, looking for new opportunities to confront West. Finally, he was escorted off the court. A volatile and somewhat amusing scene, to be sure.

The Pacers held on to win the game 118-109. Sanders finished with 4 points, 4 rebounds and 4 blocks in 18 minutes. He could face disciplinary action from the NBA league office for his antics.

Here's the video of Milwaukee Bucks forward Larry Sanders gets ejected after a lengthy scuffle with multiple members of the Indiana Pacers, including David West, Danny Granger and George Hill.
