Kevin Love torches Heat for 32 points in first half

Kevin Love torches Heat for 32 points in first half

James was furious after his drive against the Heat's James Johnson wasn't called and immediately turned towards Fitzgerald. "We want to keep getting better", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said after the game.

Despite James' ejection, the Cavaliers defeated the Heat 108-97, continuing their winning streak to nine games.

Naturally, Kanter's tweet "made its way around the Cleveland locker room" after the Cavs finished off their win over the Heat without James, according to Chris Fedor of "I said what I had to say (to referee Kane Fitzgerald) and moved on but he decided I should get (ejected)". I think I'm one of the league leaders in points in the paint.

Coming into Tuesday night, LeBron James had just about done it all. And I'm not a jump shooter. I watch games every single night and I see jump shooters going to the line double digit times every single night. And I'm not a jump shooter, and I get fouled just like everybody else do. "Yep (yes), he should have got thrown out".

James nearly posted a triple-double in the first half Tuesday, scoring 16 points with 10 rebounds and six assists.

National Basketball Association players generally do not receive further punishment when ejected and is likely to be available for Cleveland's home game against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.
