Thompson’s ejection came with 2:02 left in the third quarter, with the slap coming after he was fouled by Brandon Clarke.
As a result of Thompson’s ejection, teammate John Henson took two free throws, which he made.
Crowder was only with the Cavs for a half season during the 2017-18 campaign. In February 2018, he was dealt to the Utah Jazz.
A similar incident happened when Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did the same thing to a reporter on Monday night. That came after a college football championship victory by Beckham’s alma mater, Louisiana State University.
