Fighting Bulls: Mohammed tossed for shoving James

By

Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed was ejected from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night after shoving LeBron James to the court.

As James dribbled up the floor early in the second quarter, Mohammed reached in and tried to steal the ball near midcourt. Their arms got tangled and Mohammed fell.

He then got up and shoved James to the court.

Both players got called for technical fouls, with Mohammed also picking up a foul and getting tossed from the game.

Earlier, Joakim Noah got a technical foul for pushing Heat power forward Chris Andersen off teammate Nate Robinson.
