Technical Foul, player kicks ball into the stands without force

This is an example of a Technical Foul for unsportsmanlike conduct. Players are not permitted to intentionally throw, kick, or send the ball into the stands for any reason. Any violation of this rule results in a technical foul. Note also that if the ball enters the stands with force, the player would also be ejected from the game. On this play, after the basket is made, #7 in the blue uniform kicks the ball into the stands, but not with force, so this is a Technical Foul but not an ejection.
