(CLEVELAND) — Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has received his first ejection of his 1,082-game career.

With 1:59 left in the third quarter of Tuesday’s game against the Miami Heat, James argued with referee Kane Fitzgerald that Heat forward James Johnson did not get receive a foul when he bumped him on a missed layup.

James continued to yell at Fitzgerald as he was given a technical foul and then ejected.

Despite James’ ejection, the Cavaliers defeated the Heat 108-97, continuing their winning streak to nine games.

“I said what I had to say and I moved on,” the NBA star said to reporters after the game. “He decided I should get two of them. It is what it is. We got the win, and that’s what’s most important.”
