NEW YORK (AP) _ Knicks coach Larry Brown was ejected in the third quarter of Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers after getting two technical fouls for arguing.

After double technical fouls were called on New York's Channing Frye and the Lakers' Chris Mihm, Brown began arguing during a timeout with 5:46 remaining in the period. Referee Steve Javie called a first technical on Brown, then a second and an automatic ejection after Brown continued to argue.

Brown then walked onto the floor right up to Javie to continue the argument before being pulled away.

The Knicks were likely frustrated by the foul discrepancy. The Lakers had a 38-9 advantage in free throws attempted at that point.

Brown was ejected for the first time this season. He had only been called for two technical fouls entering the game.
