First, he was whistled for a foul on the opening tip against the Houston Rockets. Then, less than three minutes into the game, he was called for his second foul and took out his frustration on some items sitting on the scorer's table, prompting a technical and his ejection.
Gobert was upset after being called for a personal foul on an apparent James Harden flop.
The 7-footer's ejection (2:47) was the earliest any player has been sent to the shower in the last 15 years. The previous mark of 4:07 was held by both Jameer Nelson (Feb. 1, 2017) and Kevin Garnett (Jan. 12, 2015).
Gobert managed to turn the ejection into a positive, however, getting in some gym time as the game went on.
