Taurean Prince yanks down Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson FLIES IN to fight Prince (video)


James Johnson has a reputation as an athletic hothead.

He put both traits on display after Hawks forward Taurean Prince threw down Hassan Whiteside late in the Heat’s 116-93 win.

And good for Johnson. Prince’s actions were dirty, and you have to protect the franchise player.

Johnson received a technical foul and ejection. Taurean Prince earned a flagrant 2 and automatic ejection. Miami guard Dion Waiters also got hit with a technical foul.
