Kyrie Irving reacts to LeBron james' first career ejection

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James has been ejected from an National Basketball Association game for the first time in his 15-year career.

With the Cavs up 93-70 with roughly two minutes remaining in the third quarter, James drove to the basket while guarded by Miami's James Johnson. But Fitzgerald called a technical foul against the Cleveland star over his loud protests, and ejected him from the game.

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.

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.

And Dwyane Wade, in his first game against his former team since joining the Cavaliers, made sure the big cushion Love helped create would be enough in a 108-97 win over the Heat at Quicken Loans Arena. His 35-year-old legs still have spring in them, evidenced by his 15 blocks that trail only James' 23 on the Cavaliers.

After the match, the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player repeated his claim that he had been fouled. So, that's what it was about. "We got the win, that's what's most important".
