LeBron James told reporters he will pay the fine that cost Dahntay Jones two-thirds of his salary after the Cavaliers’ Eastern Conference semifinals Game 1 win over the Raptors on Monday.
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,’ James told reporters, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. But yeah, he don’t have to worry about it. He’s good.
Jones played just two minutes in Cleveland’s 116-105 win, but was assessed back-to-back technical fouls and ejected with 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter. He picked up the first after a verbal spat with Raptors rookie Jakob Poeltl. The second came after a run-in with Toronto’s Norman Powell, who took exception with Jones’ late dunk that increased Cleveland’s lead to 14.

Thomas played virtually all of the fourth quarter and overtime in the Celtics’ win, sitting only 23 seconds in the final two periods. He scored nine of Boston’s 15 overtime points on 4-of-4 shooting, outscoring the entire Washington team and hitting a dagger and-one to seal the Celtics’ victory.

Thomas has had clutch performances all season long, but Tuesday night’s took the cake. James understood that. So did everyone else.
