Channing Frye of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Trey Lyles of the Utah Jazz were ejected Monday late in Utah’s 94-85 win after Lyles appeared to elbow Frye in the groin. With 3:57 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Jazz up 86-75, Lyles used a jab step to try to create separation from Frye, who was guarding him closely near the top of the key. Lyle’s right elbow made contact between Frye’s legs, and the Cavs big man immediately confronted Lyles and got in his face, twice going forehead-to-forehead with the Jazz rookie.

Eventually Utah’s Joe Ingles tried to come between the two, and Frye appeared to throw a punch that did not connect with anyone as he was being pushed away. After a lengthy review by the officials, Lyles was called for a flagrant foul 2, resulting in an automatic ejection. Frye was called for a technical foul, his second of the game, and consequently ejected.
