It started with a standing ovation: Miami Heat legend and fan-favorite Udonis Haslem checked into a game for the first time this season. The fans — and Pat Riley — showed their love.

Haslem lasted all 2:40 before he was ejected.

Dwight Howard had tossed him to the ground in a fight for rebound position, Haslem felt it was after the play and let Howard know about it the next chance he got. The two veteran bigs went face-to-face and Haslem started waving his finger.

That’s going to make Heat fans love him even more.

Haslem did hit a couple of shots as he has played now in 18 NBA seasons.

Miami dominated the first half of this showdown and was up 60-41 at the break.
