Suns’ Jae Crowder ejected at end of Game 6 win over Lakers
Suns forward Jae Crowder was ejected at the end of Phoenix’s 113-100 Game 6 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center on Thursday night.
After a small gathering from players from both teams, Crowder was seen running directly from the court to the Suns’ locker room.
It appears he may have been given a technical for “salsa dancing.”

The technical was Crowder’s second of the game after he received one earlier in the contest as part of a double-technical with a Lakers player.
It also marks his second ejection of the six-game series after getting tossed toward the end of Game 3.
Crowder finished the night with 18 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 36:32 minutes played.
The win was the opening-round series clincher for the Suns, who advance to play the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals.
