Austin Rivers and father/coach Doc Rivers were ejected in the second quarter of the Los Angeles Clippers' 140-116 NBA loss to the Houston Rockets.

The younger Rivers was marched after missing a lay-up and pushing referee JT Orr with 6:38 left in the second quarter.

He yelled at Orr and waved his arms at him after the ejection and was led off the court by a Clippers employee.

When he got to the edge of the court, he tried going back toward the referee and had to be held back by the employee and dragged away.

During a timeout a few seconds later, Doc Rivers walked toward where all three referees were standing and began yelling at them.

He was then ejected by crew chief Jason Phillips.

The Rockets led 59-35 when the elder Rivers was ejected.
