LeBron rips ref to earn first National Basketball Association ejection

  • LeBron James ejected for first time in career

The second half was full of runs by the Miami Heat led by their starters, Dione Waiters, Goran Dragic and Haasan Whiteside but they never quite got to trim the lead to 20 points despite Lebron James getting his first ever career game ejection against his former team, who he had two National Basketball Association titles with, by the end of the third quarter. Johnson took a swipe at the ball and James missed a runner.

The Cavs' small forward was sent off after arguing with referee Kane Fitzgerald about a no-call late in the third quarter, following a drive to the basket against his old team.

The win over the Heat was Cleveland's ninth straight victory, after starting the season poorly losing six of their first 10 games.

It wasn't immediately clear what, exactly, James did to earn such a quick heave-ho.

After he was sent to the locker room, it appears James wasted little time before checking social media on his phone.

James, for his part, told reporters after the game that the frustration he shared with Fitzgerald was the same kind he's shared many times over the years: that, for as many calls as he might get, there are many more he believes he should that he doesn't. "I said what I had to say [to Fitzgerald] and then I moved on, but he decided I should get [ejected]".

Green got the hot hand on Monday and got some extended run with his most minutes in eight games.
