NEW YORK (AP) - Dwight Howard’s latest technical foul has been upheld by the NBA after a review, leaving Orlando’s All-Star center one away from another suspension.

Howard was called for his league-leading 17th technical Monday with 1:17 left in the Magic’s 113-106 overtime loss at New York. After fouling out while going for an offensive rebound, Howard tossed the ball into the backcourt.

Orlando players said that would usually warrant a delay of game warning and Howard said he would try to get it rescinded, but an NBA spokesman said Tuesday the call would stand.

Howard already served a one-game suspension after he accumulated his 16th tech. Players are then suspended another game for every other technical received after that.
