Phoenix Suns superstar Devin Booker was ejected in the first quarter of the team’s 116-100 victory against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.

Booker earned a technical arguing a foul call and received a disqualifying second technical moments later following a timeout.

Suns head coach Frank Vogel was also assessed a technical after complaining about Booker’s ejection.


Booker had seven points in under six minutes of action. His dismissal left Phoenix even more shorthanded, with fellow starter Bradley Beal out due to a hamstring strain.

The ejection came hours after Suns big man Drew Eubanks said Pistons forward Isaiah Stewart punched him during an altercation in the tunnels pregame. Stewart missed the contest with an ankle sprain, while Eubanks came off the bench.
