(Luke) Walton earned his first ejection as Lakers head coach with 4:14 left in the first quarter of Monday’s game against the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center. Walton was upset by Kings center DeMarcus Cousins knocking Julius Randle to the ground without the whistle blowing. On the next possession, Randle was called for a foul after playing physical with Cousins.
Walton stormed to midcourt and shouted several expletives toward officials, a gesture that quickly sparked two technical fouls. Lakers third-year guard Jordan Clarkson and rookie forward Brandon Ingram restrained Walton from crossing past midcourt.
