Seldom-used Miami Heat forward James Jones gave kids a quick lesson on how not to box out Thursday night against the Bulls. Known as a three-point specialist, Jones doesn’t often find himself in the lane battling for rebounds. That much is obvious. For some reason, he decided to mix it up a little in what could (should) end up being the NBA Eastern Conference Finals preview.
Charging in for a rebound, Jones gave Bulls forward Joakim Noah a forearm shiver, a non-traditional move when boxing out. Jones was given a flagrant-two and ejected. It was an extremely unnecessary play, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. It was against Joakim Noah.
