Metta World Peace was ejected with 1:37 left in the first half of Sunday’s Lakers-Thunder game for flooring James Harden with a violent left elbow to the head. Harden, once he got up, was taken to the locker room to be examined.
After a fast-break dunk that cut the Thunder’s lead to 48-47, World Peace exulted, brushed up against the Oklahoma City guard and threw the elbow. To no avail, he tried to explain to the officials that he was just celebrating his dunk.
