Kidd was upset about a foul he thought Giannis Antetokounmpo drew but was not called.

He talked about the ejection after the game:

Jason Kidd, who has had issues with the league before, could be handed a suspension for his behavior. Last night’s incident came exactly two years after Kidd, the head coach for the Nets at the time, instructed a player to spill his drink on purpose in order to get a late-game timeout. Kidd was fined $50,000 for the incident.
