Houston Rockets wing Dillon Brooks was ejected from Monday's victory over the Chicago Bulls. Midway through the third quarter, Brooks took objection to a hard foul Bulls wing DeMar DeRozan delivered to Rockets guard Jalen Green. Brooks and DeRozan got into a little scuffle, which resulted in each player getting ejected.

Following the game, Rockets center Jock Landale had a plea for his volatile teammate.

"Dillon Brooks, if you're listening, this ain't Memphis man. Stop getting yourself ejected. We need you out here. We need that physicality," Landale said in a postgame on-court interview.

Brooks has been important player in Houston's improvement this season. He signed a four-year, $86 million deal this past summer to help the Rockets rebuild. Monday's victory was Houston's seventh consecutive win and pulled them within one game of .500 on the season.
