Howard’s technical vs. Knicks upheld
Dwight Howard’s latest technical foul has been upheld by the NBA
after a review, leaving Orlando’s All-Star center one away from
Howard was called for his league-leading 17th technical Monday
with 1:17 left in the Magic’s 113-106 loss at New York. After
fouling out while going for an offensive rebound, Howard tossed the
ball into the backcourt.
Orlando players said that would usually warrant a delay of game
warning and Howard said he would try to get it rescinded, but an
NBA spokesman said Tuesday the appeal was denied.
Howard already served a one-game suspension once he accumulated
his 16th tech. Players are then suspended another game for every
other technical received after that.
