On Wednesday, frustration seemed to get the best of Miles Bridges.

Bridges argued a goaltending call when he believed he cleanly blocked a Deandre Hunter layup in the fourth quarter. (Hunter's shot, however, was already on the way down after hitting the glass.) Bridges was hot enough to immediately get hit with a technical foul and when he continued arguing, he was quickly hit with a second.

It doesn't come to a conclusion, but he seemed to keep arguing before being redirected to the back by a variety of Hornets players and coaches. On his way to the back, he seemed to react to a fan mocking him and, in response, tossed his mouthpiece into the crowd, causing the wound to a young Hawks fan.

After arguing this goaltend call, Miles Bridges was ejected.

Bridges will be fined for this in some way. On the other hand, throwing any object into the crowd is a very much not going to go unpunished by the NBA. Even considering Bridges' frustration about his team's performance in the game and Charlotte's season coming to an end, this was not an appropriate reaction in any way.

Bridges has already received a letter from social media, tweeting that his apology was "unacceptable" and that he would like to contact the fan. He also addressed the incident after the game and expressed his remorse.

Somebody get me in touch with the young lady. That's unacceptable.

It's good to see him take ownership of what he did, but that will not hinder the league from imposing a fine in the future.
