Steve Javie called technicals on Johnson and Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki with 10:16 left in the period after Nowitzki was inadvertanly struck in the face by Kobe Bryant but was called for a foul.
Johnson picked up his second technical 2½ minutes later, leaving with the Mavericks trailing 68-50. Bryant had 41 points at that stage -- five shy of his season high.
