LeBron Says He Will Pay Dahntay Jones’ Fine Again


For the second straight postseason, LeBron James is opening his wallet to pay for the fallout from something teammate Dahntay Jones did against the Toronto Raptors.

Jones played three minutes at the end of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 116-105 Game 1 Eastern Conference semifinals win over the Raptors on Monday and picked up back-to-back technical fouls for talking trash to Toronto’s Norman Powell, which earned him an ejection with 18.7 seconds remaining.

(Said LeBron:) “And I told him tonight, I said, ‘Listen, Dahntay, now enough is enough. Stop getting kicked out against Toronto all the time. I’m going to stop paying your damn fines.’ But yeah, he don’t have to worry about it. He’s good.”
