The Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls are involved in a heated back-and-forth Game 3 that has already involved a number of technical fouls and one ejection just in to the second-quarter. We passed along the news and video of Bulls center Joakim Noah getting T’d up after shoving Miami’s Chris “Birdman” Andersen and there was another incident shortly after.
Nazr Mohammed and LeBron James were involved in an incident of their own that resulted in Mohammed getting ejected from the game.
James was also handed a technical.
Here is a brief description of the incident from ESPN’s SportsCenter:
Tempers are flaring in Chicago. Nazr Mohammed has been ejected after shoving Lebron James to the ground. James is charged with a technical.

The officials have to act quickly and get this game under control, which they appear to be doing.
If they would let the physical play continue to escalate, it could only be a matter of time until we start to see punches thrown.
Here is a video of the incident:
Smooth acting job, LeBron!
