Bulls center Nazr Mohammed got thrown out of the game after he shoved LeBron James to the court tonight. Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinals series is turning out to be picking up where Game 2 left off.
Mohammed fouled James to prevent a fast break that the Heat love to run to score fast break points. Referee Joey Crawford gave James with a technical foul for his reaction to the whistle. Out of the clear blue Nazr went all WWE on James and pushed him down. Since James is the MVP Mohammed got ejected and James is still playing.
This wasn’t the first fight of the game. In the first quarter, Joakim Noah got a technical for shoving Chris “Birdman” Andersen while Andersen was on the floor following a collision with Nate Robinson as he went for a layup. On Wednesday, the refs game out a total of nine technical fouls.
I can’t wait to see Game 4.
