Lebron, Heat Fight Off Scrappy Bulls, Take Series Edge! [Video]

Lebron Nazr Mohammed 1

“I haven’t been in a situation like that before, and but … my mind is in another place right now,” James said after finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, and hit a 3-pointer with 2:35 remaining that gave the Heat a seven-point lead and put away the game.

“I’m not a dirty player, I’m not an instigator,” Mohammed said. “I’m out there playing hard, physical basketball, the way I was taught when I came into this league. If a guy is going on a steal on a break, you want to stop the break.

“I tried to stop the break, got tossed to the ground, got up instinctively. … I’m just so happy I didn’t do anything else, and I just pushed him. I had to come back in the locker room and watch it because I couldn’t recall what happened. I was kind of [angry] he kind of pushed me to the ground.

“It was a soft foul. It wasn’t like I fouled him hard. You expect that when you foul a guy hard you expect him to kind of give you a little extra. But not on a soft, stop-the-break-type foul.” – nypost

“From my angle, I just saw a guy flop,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “I’ll leave it at that.

“We’re well aware of what’s going on. I’m watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I’m seeing is … we’ll adjust accordingly.” – nypost

Before anyone could realize what happened Mohammed quickly ran and shoved Lebron to the floor hard (add a flop to that), and he was swiftly ejected for that!
