Watch: Tristan Thompson ejected at end of Game 1
Tristan Thompson got the heave ho from Game 1 of the NBA Finals between his Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.
Thompson was ejected with 2.6 seconds left in the game and the Warriors up 124-114. Thompson was called for a flagrant 2 foul, which results in an automatic ejection. He went up to contest a layup attempt by Steph Curry and elbowed the Warriors star.

A lot of words were exchanged between the two sides after that. Thompson was getting into it with Draymond Green, who had to be restrained.

The NBA may have to review the play to see whether or not Thompson left the floor in a timely fashion, because he could be subject to more discipline.
Between this and the JR Smith blunder, it was a terrible ending for the Cavs.
