Carlisle Ejected From Minnesota Game for Arguing

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was ejected for arguing in the second quarter of Dallas' game Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was stripped by Brian Cardinal while driving for a layup. The Timberwolves converted the turnover into a fast-break dunk with 6:30 left in the second.

Carlisle protested the non-call and was given a quick technical by official Gary Zielinski. The first-year Mavericks coach persisted, yelling at Zielinski before he was given another technical.

It was Carlisle's first ejection of the season. Assistant coach Dwane Casey took over for Carlisle.
