Referee Steve Javie ejects Doc Rivers from Friday's game.Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers earned consecutive technical fouls and was ejected from Friday's game against the Phoenix Suns.

With the Celtics down 15 with 4:33 remaining in the second quarter, Rivers appeared to voiced frustration about fouls called against his team and Javie assessed a technical during a timeout. When Rivers mockingly applauded the call and continued to bark, Javie tossed him from the game.

Rivers could be seen on the broadcast shouting, "It's all about you, it's all about you" at Javie.

Rivers might have simply been trying to light a fire under his listless team. Boston, playing the tail end of a back-to-back, came out sluggish and finished with a season-low 35 first-half points.
