By the end of the Dallas Mavericks' road trip Saturday night, center Tyson Chandler had picked up two more technical fouls -- neither of which he felt he deserved -- to give him 10 on the season.

On Monday, the league vindicated Chandler, rescinding the technicals he picked up in Wednesday's game at Sacramento and in Saturday's game at Houston.

Total number of technicals is important because players that pile up 16 during the regular season are punished with a one-game suspension. Initially, it was thought the two rescinded technicals dropped Chandler's total to eight.

However, NBA spokesman Tim Frank said that Chandler also had two other technical fouls rescinded from earlier this season, so the league ledger has Chandler for just six technicals with 28 games to go. The other rescinded technicals were from the season-opener on Oct. 27 against Charlotte and Jan. 12 at Indiana.
