The Raptors and Thunder were tied up at 125 late in the fourth quarter today. Kyle Lowry had fouled out by the time that DeMar DeRozan drove to the rim with roughly 30 seconds remaining. He shook Corey Brewer with a behind-the-back dribble and made his way to the rim. Brewer recovered and caused DeRozan to miss the layup. DeRozan thought he was fouled and passionately let referee Marc Davis know. Davis then gave DeRozan a technical.

And with the Raps down by 5 with 11.7 seconds, they turned the ball over on an inbound play.

DeRozan was again unhappy with a no-call and he went off again. Davis ejected him. Serge Ibaka got thrown out moments later.

When the Thunder were shooting their free throw for that ejection, Raps head coach Dwane Casey was also thrown out, even though it seemed like he didn’t say anything to the refs. The Thunder won the game by 7.
