Nelson was complaining to the referees throughout the first half about what he claimed was a disparity of foul calls against his team. Golden State was whistled for 17 fouls in the first half to Houston's 11.
When Andris Biedrins was whistled for fouling Rafer Alston on a drive with 32.2 seconds left in the half, Nelson rushed to midcourt and started screaming in Kennedy's face. Kennedy quickly signaled two technical fouls and Nelson stormed off the court. It was his first ejection of the season.
Golden State assistant Keith Smart took over coaching duties for the rest of the game.
The Rockets led 56-52 at halftime.
