The most memorable moment of Washington’s home loss to the Raptors on Tuesday night likely came in the fourth quarter, when Randy Wittman was ejected after arguing with officials.

Wizards fans stood and cheered for Wittman as he appeared to stare down officials and then exited the court. Via Michael Lee:

Wittman earned his first ejection of the season after disputing an offensive foul called against all-star point guard John Wall late in the fourth quarter of a 103-93 loss to the Raptors. Wittman angrily exited with 4 minutes 39 seconds remaining and wasn’t around to see his team stage a rally from a 20-point deficit to get within six points. He had already seen enough.

Of course, some cynical Wizards fans suggested the crowd was cheering because Wittman would no longer be manning the bench.

Regardless, if you missed the game, here’s the sequence that led to Wittman’s early exit.

You can see that officials did not appear to agree with his points.

So then he left, amid darkness.
