Nets coach Avery Johnson ejected in third quarter
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)
New Jersey coach Avery Johnson has been ejected from the game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Replays showed that Brand's hand never touched the ball and seemed to paw at Harris' chest. The ball was stripped and players on both teams stood and waited for a call.
When none was made, Jodie Meeks went the other way for a layup.
Johnson argued with official Brent Barnaky and got tossed for the first time as the Nets' coach, walking off the court to chants of ''Avery, Avery, Avery.''
