The officials then went to the monitor to look at the play. Upon further review, they assessed Drummond a flagrant-2 foul resulting in a mandatory ejection. Looking at the play again, it looks like Drummond’s elbow makes some contact with Hibbert’s head but for the referees to give him a flagrant-2 for that action is questionable.
Drummond finished the game with three points and six rebounds in only 13 minutes. This was Drummond’s first career ejection. The Pistons would later rally without their all star center and win the game 112-89.
