Which set off Denver coach Michael Malone.
Malone threw a screaming fit, got ejected and then was restrained as he continued to yell.
As Malone left the court, the ball bounced to him. He caught it and took a couple steps. But instead of turning his outburst epic, he threw the ball back.
The Nuggets responded well to their coach’s ejection. Up only one when he got tossed, they beat San Antonio 106-96. Denver has won seven straight.
