Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki was ejected with 9:16 left in the third quarter of a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night, drawing a quick pair of technical fouls from official Bill Kennedy for complaining about a foul call.

Nowitzki was whistled for grabbing Clippers forward Drew Gooden.

When Nowitzki complained, Kennedy screamed, ``Bam! Right there!'' as he pointed at Nowitzki for the first technical foul. Nowitzki apparently said something else because he got hit with another technical foul and the automatic ejection with Dallas ahead 65-56.

Nowitzki had 18 points in 19 minutes.

In the first half, Kennedy gave Clippers center Chris Kaman a technical foul for complaining.
