Kendrick Perkins was ejected in the third quarter of the New Orleans Pelicans’ 117-112 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night after striking the chin and neck area of Damian Lillard with his forearm in an attempt to stop the point guard from scoring.
Perkins was assessed a flagrant foul 2, a call upheld after video review, for the blow that sent Lillard to the ground.
