Kendrick Perkins was whistled for his fifth technical of the season in the third quarter Friday,. Perkins disagreed with a shoving call on Matt Barnes as both raced for a ball headed for the sideline. Perkins made finger gestures and yelled at official Tony Brothers perhaps a few moments too long, prompting the tech.
Perkins entered Friday tied with teammate Rasheed Wallace for the NBA league with four. Remember, any technical after 16 results in an automatic one-game suspension.
