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.

Game 1 of that series will begin on Monday at Phoenix Suns Arena.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
