Portland Trail Blazers forward Rasheed Wallace was ejected from Thursday night's game against Sacramento for arguing with an official in the third quarter.

Wallace extended his technical total to 29 after receiving two from referee Ron Garretson. Last season, Wallace set an NBA record with 38 technicals.

It was the fourth ejection for Wallace this season and his second in three games. The All-Star was suspended for two games for throwing a towel at referee Gary Benson after Wallace was ejected in a victory over Phoenix on Feb. 1.

Garretson called Wallace for an offensive foul with 8:02 left in the third quarter and the Blazers ahead by 15 points. Wallace said something to Garretson and walked toward him, and teammate Damon Stoudamire rushed up to the official to try and push him away. But it was too late.

Wallace kept arguing, and Garretson issued another technical, resulting in an automatic ejection.
