The officials handed out double-technical fouls, and both players were ejected.
Martin had 8 points in 22 minutes prior to his ejection, while Koloko had 1 point in 12 minutes.
Raptors fans already were upset with Martin over a hard foul on Scottie Barnes last season. Now they can add this to Martin’s growing list of offenses.
