In what may have marked his last game in a Lakers uniform, Dwight Howard was ejected in Game 4 of the Lakers-Spurs first-round series.
Howard was ejected as the Lakers trailed 55-44 with 9:51 left in the third quarter after arguing with a referee. His first technical happened with 50 seconds left in the first quarter after elbowing San Antonio guard Cory Joseph. Howard had collected four technical fouls during the Lakers’ playoff series against San Antonio.
Howard, who finished with seven points on 2 of 2 shooting and eight rebounds, shook hands with a few teammates before leaving the entrance tunnel. The Lakers trail 3-0 against San Antonio and entered the fourth quarter trailing 78-58. If Howard signs with the Lakers, it would be for five years worth $117.8 million. If it’s another team, it will be four-years, $87.6 million.
