Kevin Garnett was tossed from Saturday night's Minnesota Timberwolves-Memphis Grizzlies game after receiving his second technical foul of the evening midway through the third quarter.

Garnett was whistled for the technical when he spiked the ball down in frustration after being called for a foul while defending Grizzlies forward Jeff Green. Since it was the second time he was T'd up, he was automatically ejected.

As Garnett left the floor, the Timberwolves crowd—clearly as in love with him as ever—cheered to show their support for the future Hall of Famer.
