Del Negro tossed after storming court

CHICAGO -- Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro was kicked out of
Monday's game against the Houston Rockets after storming the court
and arguing.

Del Negro was upset after Derrick Rose was called for a blocking
foul that led to a three-point play for Houston's Kyle Lowry.
Seconds later, Del Negro stormed the court after Taj Gibson was
called for an offensive foul.

The Bulls led 72-62 when Del Negro was kicked out by official
Bob Delaney with 58.5 seconds left in the third quarter. They went on to win 98-88.
