Hollins ejected after forearm to Nowitzki's head
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Ryan Hollins was ejected from the game against Dallas in the fourth quarter on Monday night after delivering a forearm to Dirk Nowitzki's head.
After Nowitzki grabbed a rebound on the defensive end, Hollins threw his left forearm at Nowitzki's head, landing a glancing shot. Officials reviewed the play and assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, which brought the ejection.
It was the second confrontation of the night for Hollins. He appeared to accidentally put an elbow into DeShawn Stevenson's head during a scrum for a rebound in the first quarter. Stevenson reacted strongly and was assessed a technical foul before confronting Hollins, who was not charged with a foul on the play.
Hollins had 13 points and nine rebounds in the game.
