Charlotte Bobcats shooting guard Stephen Jackson is now three technical fouls away from an automatic, one-game suspension, after he was ejected in the first half of Monday's victory over the Boston Celtics.

Jackson received T's Nos.12 and 13. Under NBA rules a 16th in a season results in a one-game suspension.

Jackson lost his temper after being charged with a foul against Boston's Kevin Garnett with about 1 1/2 minutes left in the first half. This was the third time this season he's been ejected for two Ts in the same game.
