(Isaiah) Thomas, who finished with 23 points – 10 of which came in the fourth – was whistled for a flagrant-2 foul which is an automatic ejection, after his elbow landed in the face of Miami’s Justise Winslow with 3:02 to play.
“Just a regular basketball move I do every game,” Thomas said after the win. “It just happened to connect. I don’t mess with elbows. I’m far from a dirty player. It sucks the NBA makes those type of calls.”
