The Timberwolves are a basketball team... Though you wouldn't know it from the Minnesota Timberwolves game Monday night. Ryan Hollins the stand-out forward as of late on the Minnesota Timbewolves roster was ejected from a game after 2 scuffles with Dallas Mavericks players.
The first accident happened when Hollins accidentally put an elbow into DeShawn Stevenson's head during a rebound in the first quarter. Stevenson reacted poorly and was given a technical foul, Hollins walked away from that issue without a foul or reprimand.
Then Hollins got into with to Dirk Nowitzki. Nowitzki rebounded on the defensive end, and Hollins threw his left forearm at Nowitzki's head, hitting the Mavericks player fairly hard. Officials reviewed the play and assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, which caused Hollins to be ejected from the game.
Minnesota Timberwolves Coach Kurt Rambis told reporters later, "I don't like some of his decision-making, but I like his aggressiveness. When guys play hard, there's a lot of physical contact, tempers are going to flare."
