Miami’s Whiteside Ejected After Cheap Shot on Kelly Olynyk

The Celtics beat the Heat on Monday night, but they were partially aided in the win by a silly decision by Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside.

The seven-footer shoved Kelly Olynyk in the back with a blatant cheap shot late in the third quarter with neither really involved in the play. Upon an official review, Whiteside was given a flagrant-2 foul and an automatic ejection, finishing his night with seven points and nine rebounds in 22 minutes.

Miami trailed the Celtics by nine points (73-64) when Whiteside got tossed in the third quarter and lost the game 100-90.
