NBA Rescinds Technical Foul on Dwight Howard

The NBA announced Wednesday that it has rescinded Howard's sixth technical foul of the playoffs, which he was given for taunting Anderson Varejao after a layup in the fourth quarter of the Magic's 116-114 overtime victory Tuesday night. Cleveland's forward had draped his arms around Howard in a failed attempt to stop him from scoring.

Howard's total of technicals for the postseason is thus back down to five. Players receive a one-game suspension after reaching seven technical fouls and further one-game suspensions for every other technical thereafter.

    Thank goodness the NBA had enough common sense to rescind that technical. D12 was merely showing emotion, not trying to taunt anyone.

    Ya I totally agree, I think the officiating in every game of this series has been very biased towards the Magic. That technical was ridiculous when it was called and the refs really need to sit back and think how they are officiating games. I really don't want to see the NBA come down to these totally bullshit calls. On the other hand the Magic are over coming this and they are totally going to knock out the Cavs in game 6, if not game 5 tonight!!!

    I try not to focus too much on external factors (like officiating) when watching NBA games.

    I believe effort and intelligence are the two main factors for a team in winning a game.

    The Magic have done a pretty good job of not letting some of the calls get to them, and are concentrating on the game instead of arguing with the refs.

    Intelligence right there!
