May 12 5:46 PM PT6:46 PM MT7:46 PM CT8:46 PM ET0:46 GMT8:46 5:46 PM MST7:46 PM EST4:46 UAE (+1)02:4620:46 ET7:46 PM CT23:46 - Gibson has been ejected from Game 5 in the fourth quarter for kicking Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova. Gibson shoved Dellavedova from behind and then delivered a kick while Cleveland's scrappy guard was lying in the foul lane. Players from both teams then exchanged shoves and pushes under the basket before order was restored.
Analysis: The officials reviewed video of the play, which appeared to show Dellavedova locking his legs around Gibson's, before referee Joey Crawford tossed Gibson with 10:26 left and Cleveland leading 83-73. Tensions were running high long before Gibson's kick in the pivotal game as LeBron James and Joakim Noah exchanged words, and the Bulls forward was called for a technical.
