Indiana forward Josh McRoberts was ejected from Game 5 of the

Pacers’ first-round series against the Chicago Bulls after throwing

an elbow at Joakim Noah in the closing seconds of the third


They were starting to run back the other way after a missed

3-pointer by Derrick Rose when McRoberts swung his right elbow at

Noah. He missed, but the referees called a flagrant foul 2,

resulting in an ejection and two free throws for Noah with 2.5

seconds remaining.

He hit both, stretching Chicago’s lead to 84-65. With a 3-1

lead, the Bulls are trying to close out the series.
