“They said I pointed my finger like a gun at Dudley,” Jennings, who was officially fined for “making menacing gestures on the playing court,” said of what the officials told him before he was ejected.
Jennings said after the game that he expected to hear from the league office, but maintained that he was simply sticking up for his teammate.
“I was telling Dudley to relax, like, calm down, because you’re not that type of guy,” Jennings said. “Jason Smith didn’t do anything wrong anyway. All he did was set a good pick, so for you to come at a guy like Jason Smith, who’s not even a bad guy or don’t do things like that – so what are you doing? I was just protecting my teammate.”
Jennings, who signed with Washington last week after being released by the Knicks, has appeared in four games for the Wizards. He played 18 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s 123-113 win over Denver.
