Referee Ken Mauer Has Gone Mad! 5 Technicals In 10 Seconds Must Be A Record (Video)

We take you to the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota for what may be the wildest 10 seconds of NBA action this season.  Strangely enough, it did not include a thunderous dunk, high-flying alley-oop, or a no-look pass.  In fact, it didn’t even include a field goal.  So what could make it so exciting you ask?  How about five technical fouls in a matter of 10 seconds, thanks to a power-crazed Ken Mauer.

Not only did Mauer happen to miss a few calls on the Spurs and make a bad call against the Timberwolves, but he also dished out two technical fouls to Timberwolves’ head coach Kurt Rambis, and one apiece to Kevin Love, Corey Brewer and Darko Milicic, leaving Manu Ginobili to shoot five shots from the charity stripe.

And while Mauer was busy calling his fifth technical foul, we were busy trying to figure out why he called the first four.  In all seriousness, this free-wheeling technical foul frenzy in the NBA really needs to stop at some point.
