VIDEO: Amir Johnson loses his cool, throws mouthguard at referee
The Toronto Raptors forward was furious at being ejected from last night’s game with the Portland Trail Blazers.

AMIR JOHNSON OF the Toronto Raptors is facing a fine from the NBA after flipping out during their game with the Portland Trail Blazers last night.

The forward caught the ball after a Portland free throw and was ejected from the court after getting into a tussle with referee David Jones. He wasn’t going to leave without a fight, however, and chucked his mouthguard at Jones – hitting him on the back.

I guess the ref didn’t let me have the ball so we kind of got into a tug of war,” Johnson told CBC. “No words were really said and he ejected me out of the game and I kind of lost my cool from there.”
