Florida State Football Scores Huge Transfer Win In Former Georgia 5-Star OT
Charlotte Hornets star Miles Bridges lost his temper after being sacked by the Hawks and threw his mouthguard at fans in Atlanta.
Play-in games can feel like life and death situations for players, so it’s no surprise that emotions run high.
Nonetheless, Hornets forward Miles Bridges definitely let his passion take over on Wednesday night when he took on the Hawks.
Bridges received a technical – and then another, resulting in his being ejected for his fiery response to a goalkeeper call. On his way out of the arena, he took his frustration out on some nearby fans.

A Hawks fan seemed to catch Bridges’ attention with heckles as he walked out, but when the player turned and threw his mouthguard into the stands, it was an innocent bystander who was smacked in the face with it.
Bridges immediately realized he had crossed a line. He tweeted hoping to find the fan he met.
It’s good that Bridges is taking responsibility, but the league will likely have something to say about this incident as well. Just as fans have nothing to do with throwing things at players, players also need to keep their emotions in check.
Atlanta eventually walked away with a 132-103 win.
