Pacers David Harrison Explodes After Receiving Technical


The Indiana Pacers lost another game Thursday, 108-97 to the San Antonio Spurs, and their already bizarre season took another unexpected turn. Emotional center David Harrison was hit with a technical foul late in the fourth quarter and suffered a meltdown inside the locker room after the game, according to several Pacers players. Harrison, who was unavailable for comment, received medical attention following the game. A Pacers team member immediately  shut the training room door when media members walked near that area.

Harrison’s frustration stemmed from a hit in the face he received from Spurs forward Matt Bonner with less than a minute remaining in the game. Bonner was called for an offensive foul on the play.
Clearly frustrated after the play, Harrison, who has battled problems with his emotions throughout his four-year career, had to be told to calm down by his teammates on numerous occasions. He picked up a technical for reportedly making threatening remarks about Bonner to an official. Click here for more from the Indianapolis Star.
