Heat baller Josh Richardson was ejected from the court after he threw a shoe into the stands.

Richardson was fuming over the Heat's 113-97 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers last night.

"I don't want to talk about it. It was a series of events... I got caught up.

"I wasn't really thinking about much. I was thinking about how frustrated I was. And going forward I can't let that happen," Richardson said after the game.

The shoe was thrown after Richardson scored his fifth personal foul and also threw his shoe against the scorer's table.

"You saw a competitive will come out," Miami coach, Erik Spoelstra said. "I think probably what you saw more than anything and I agree with Josh -- not throwing his shoe into the stands, that's unacceptable -- but going in for the dunk when there's some contact there and he lost his shoe ... from my angle, it looked like there was contact. [...] That is probably where the source of the major frustration came from... And also getting our tails handed to us for the majority of the game. It should bring out some kind of emotion out of our guys when we are playing at home and not playing the way we want to.

But the response after going to the bench, that is not acceptable."
