BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was ejected from Monday's game against the Atlanta Hawks for arguing a third-quarter flagrant foul call against Glen Davis.

A livid Rivers screamed at official Bennett Salvatore after Davis was called for a hard foul against Marvin Williams and he was quickly assessed a double technical and ejected.

Rivers, who has preached the motto, "He who angers you, owns you" this season, was as emotional as we've seen him and was incredulous after getting tossed.

As Rivers left to a standing ovation, assistant coach Armond Hill got tagged with a technical foul of his own as the Celtics' coaching staff continued to argue with the officials.

The Hawks ultimately attempted five technical free throws, making four, to slice a 10-point deficit to 67-61 with 6:16 to play in the third quarter.
