CLEVELAND — Cavaliers star LeBron James was ejected for the first time in his 15-year career during Tuesday night’s 108-97 win over the Miami Heat.
James, playing in his 1,082nd career game, was tossed with 1:59 remaining in the third quarter and the Cavs leading 93-70.
After getting a steal, James dribbled upcourt and missed a layup, then argued with referee Kane Fitzgerald that Heat forward James Johnson fouled him on the attempt. Fitzgerald assessed James with a single technical foul and ejected him from the game.
“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 said of the sequence leading up to his ejection. “I said what I had to say and then I moved on, but he decided I should get [ejected]. It is what it is. We got the win, and that’s what’s most important.”
Fitzgerald explained the rationale behind his decision to a pool reporter after the game.
