The Derrick Rose-less Bulls pushed around the Heat Friday in Miami, collected 19 offensive rebounds, and left South Beach with a 96-89 victory. The bigger story was a referee finally standing up to LeBron James.
A frustrated LeBron (30 points), was lobbying for a call he wasn’t going to get in the 4th quarter, and referee Brian Forte got annoyed, shouting, “HEY LEBRON, ENOUGH!” which had to surprise everyone within earshot.
LeBron, with a shocked look on his face, snapped back, and then Ray Allen was tasked with the job of getting LeBron over to the Heat bench. LeBron verbally abused him, telling Allen “get the fuck off of me” as he pulled his arm away from the veteran’s grasp.
