Bulls’ Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were both ejected in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s Game 2 against the Heat after each player received their second technical foul of the game. Joakim Noah earned his first technical after getting into it with LeBron James and his second for arguing a call with referee Scott Foster early in the fourth quarter with the Bulls down 37 points. Taj Gibson received his second technical for arguing a call and was spewing profanity at referee Scott Foster upon receiving the technical foul which could result in a fine or suspension from the league. These were Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson’s first career postseason ejections.
