Neither Ibaka nor Johnson had been ejected prior to Tuesday's clash, but they were both involved in spats last season.
Ibaka's was perhaps the most notable, when he was ejected from a showdown against the Chicago Bulls and ultimately suspended one game for exchanging blows with Robin Lopez.

Johnson, meanwhile, was tossed from a meeting with the Atlanta Hawks last February after he threw a forearm into the chest of forward Taurean Prince.
Ibaka and Johnson should expect calls from the league office regarding disciplinary action in the coming days.
