Kyrie Irving reacts to LeBron james' first career ejection

David Aldridge

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.

Fitzgerald tossed James with 1:59 remaining in the third quarter after LeBron argued that he had been fouled on a layup attempt by Heat forward James Johnson.

He had 21 points, 12 rebounds and six assists when he was sent off the court. The Cavs barely needed to break a sweat late, thanks to a season-high 75 points in the first two quarters that overwhelmed the Heat and sent Cleveland on the way to a 108-97 win that was, for all intents and purposes, over before halftime.

It wasn't immediately clear what, exactly, James did to earn such a quick heave-ho. The dismissal was the first time in James' NBA career that he had been ejected. Perhaps Fitzgerald was a little quick to show him the door.

While the Knicks are in the midst of a three-game losing streak in Kanter's absence, the first-year Knick did not back down from a feud that began earlier this season when James doubted Frank Ntilikina was the right draft choice for the Knicks.

"I got fouled", James said. It is what it is.
