Mayo was assessed a technical foul during a timeout at the 4:07 mark, and things got ugly from there. As Mayo dissented, with the Bucks trailing 18–5, he was given a second technical and ejected.
The veteran guard was so angry he had to be restrained by coaches and teammates in a drawn-out series of events. Mayo was eventually escorted back to the locker room.
It was a rough start to the game on all accounts for the Bucks, who trailed 28–15 after the first.
