LeBron ejected for 1st time in career vs. Heat

LeBron James felt the wrath of NBA officiating Tuesday like he never had before.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star was ejected late in the third quarter against the Miami Heat by referee Kane Fitzgerald after arguing a non-call.

It was James' first ejection of his career.

He finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, five steals, and a block on 10-of-16 shooting in 28 minutes of action before exiting. Cleveland had a 23-point lead upon his departure.

James had made 1,081 regular-season appearances between the Cavaliers and Miami Heat since entering the league in 2003 without ever receiving the boot like he did at Quicken Loans Arena. The only players to have played more without an ejection are Tony Parker (1,144) and Pau Gasol (1,139) of the San Antonio Spurs, according to ESPN Stats and Info.
