Whiteside got tossed with 4:26 left in the third quarter of the Heat’s 115-98 victory after charging at Len and tackling him under the basket. Len provoked that by grabbing the back of Whiteside’s jersey and shoving him. They had been going at it most of the night, and that was the breaking point. “It was about the fourth or fifth time I dunked on him and I feel like he was really frustrated,” Whiteside said. “I shouldn’t have came back an retaliated the way I did because it really hurt my team… but every day is a learning day for me. But that’s what it was– it was just because I just kept dunking on him.” Palm Beach Post
Before ruling on his and Len’s altercation, the NBA likely will talk to both parties for an explanation. Whiteside said his message to the league will be, “I just retaliated. I shouldn’t have retaliated. I should’ve walked away, but when you’re in the heat of the moment– I just came down after a dunk and I guess he felt like my arm hit him in the face or whatever it was and he kinda threw me to the side. We’re a family and everybody came over and backed me up. It was just melee basically… That’s when I retaliated, and I was wrong for that.” Palm Beach Post
