Irving had never been ejected before during his NBA career. He has been in the NBA since 2011.

Irving tossed his jersey to fans as he left for the locker room, per Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.

The ejection decisions were not well-received by some analysts, including Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen & Roll and Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily:

Like, I’m sorry you can hear more of what players are always saying because it’s quieter. Wear earplugs or grow up, no one is here to watch you. Between this and the broadcast product I’m more convinced than ever that the league office doesn’t watch games.

Most disappointing things tonight:

1) The refs ejecting Kyrie Irving & Dennis Schröder.

2) LaMarcus Aldridge really struggling against Andre Drummond.

The Lakers were up 66-62 with 9: 41 remaining in the third quarter at the time of the ejections.

Alex Caruso substituted in for Schroder, and Landry Shamet took Irving’s place on the court.
