LeBron James Ejected for First Time in NBA Career

LeBron James Ejected for First Time in NBA Career

Johnson took a swipe at the ball and James missed a runner.

In a moment of frustration in the third quarter, LeBron James had some pretty choice words for an official after he felt he deserved a foul called. He was then given a technical foul.

The 32-year-old veteran, who led Cleveland to its first National Basketball Association championship in 2016, managed 21 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in the game. The Heat couldn't capitalize, however, as the Cavaliers triumphed 108-97 for their ninth straight victory.

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

Although Irving's comments may have indicated that he, like everyone else, thought James' ejection was questionable, it does not seem as if he wanted to stir the pot more than it already has been. Perhaps Fitzgerald was a little quick to show him the door.

It was the first time in his 15-year career that he had been sent off. He's not going to get big run all the time, but Green has the ability to play on both ends, which is a great asset for the Cavs when they go small.

"I got fouled all the way up the court, from the time that I stripped him, all the way until I got to the rim", James told reporters. I said what I had to say and I moved on, but he decided I should get two [technicals]. "We got the win, and that's what's most important".
