The Detroit Pistons were able to win last night without Andre Drummond in the second half after he was ejected from their game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Having scored just 3 points and pulled down 6 rebounds, Drummond was kicked out of the game after he was deemed to have elbowed Roy Hibbert in the back of the head as they battled for position under the basket.
With four minutes left in the first half, the All-Star center was heading to the dressing room, but not before the 23-year-old let officials know what he thought of the call with a sarcastic clap.
Following the game, Drummond said: "Look man, I don't make the rules. I just play the game. They felt like I did something maliciously. Everybody that knows me and the way I play, that's not the type of player I am.
"But at the end of the day it wasn't my call, so I took the consequences and walked off the floor."
Drummond isn't known as a vicious player and video replays show there was little intent in his actions, but his ejection from the game didn't hurt Detroit as they ran out comfortable winners.
It was always likely the Pistons were going to beat Charlotte. The Hornets were playing their fourth game in five days, were competing in their third successive outing and had been on the road on Monday night in Memphis.
