TORONTO - Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott was ejected from Friday's game at Toronto after a brief but fiery argument with the referees.
Scott received a double technical with 53 seconds left in the first half after walking onto the court in an angry exchange with referees John Goble and Kane Fitzgerald.
It was the first ejection of the season for Scott, who was escorted from the floor by a team security director. Assistant coach Paul Pressey took over the team.
Cleveland, the last-place team in its division, entered play Friday on a season-high nine-game losing streak.
