Toronto Raptors' Amir Johnson Throws Mouthpiece At Ref

If a mouthpiece gets tossed during a forgettable game between the Toronto Raptors and the Portland Trail Blazers, does anyone notice? Well, if it connects with a referee, the league office will undoubtedly take notice. Toronto big man Amir Johnson will soon find out. Between Portland center J.J. Hickson's free-throw attempts, Johnson got into an apparent argument with referee David Jones while trying to retrieve the basketball. As Jones made his way toward the scorer's table after ejecting Johnson, Johnson decided to hurl his mouthpiece in the ref's direction, hitting Jones in the back.
