Bryant’s Game 6 Technical Rescinded by NBA

General Manager Mitch Kupchak and the Lakers appealed Kobe Bryant’s second half technical foul in Thursday night’s Game 6 loss to Houston, and on Friday, according to head coach Phil Jackson, were informed that the technical was rescinded.

It’s good news for Bryant and the Lakers primarily because Bryant was inching towards the 7-technical ceiling, which mandates a one-game suspension from the NBA.

Bryant currently has four technical fouls in the playoffs.
