Wednesday November 26th, 2014

Sacramento Kings coach Michael Malone was ejected from Tuesday night's game against the Pelicans in New Orleans.

Malone drew two technical fouls while appearing to argue a call (or lack thereof) in the second quarter.

Malone was seen exchanging words with official Eric Lewis near halfcourt before screaming and gesturing in protest as he walked down the sideline.
