PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Toronto's Amir Johnson has been ejected from a game against the Portland Trail Blazers for arguing with an official.

Johnson had words with referee David Jones while trying to take the ball from him following a Portland free throw. After Johnson was ejected, he threw his mouthpiece at Jones.

Fellow players had to restrain Johnson before he was escorted from the floor on Monday night.

Johnson, a reserve forward/center, is averaging 7.3 points and 5.4 rebounds this season.
