TNT’s Terrence Romeo and San Miguel’s Marcio Lassiter figured in a commotion during the closing minutes of the first half which resulted in the ejection of two of the league’s deadliest shooters.
Lassiter gave a driving Romeo a hard foul which did not sit well with the Gilas Pilipinas stalwart since a foul has already been called on the play. Romeo charged towards Lassiter and bumped the SMB shooter on the chest.
Game officials reviewed the incident and called a regular foul on Lassiter plus a technical foul on both of them.
In the ensuing play, another foul was whistled on Lassiter and Romeo clapped his hands vigorously on the face of the 31-year old Fil-Am who reacted by shoving the former GlobalPort star.
A technical foul was again issued to both which automatically resulted in their ejections.
