CHICAGO (AP) -- Indiana forward Josh McRoberts was ejected from Game 5 of the Pacers' first-round series against the Chicago Bulls after throwing an elbow at Joakim Noah in the closing seconds of the third quarter.

They were starting to run back the other way after a missed 3-pointer by Derrick Rose when McRoberts swung his right elbow at Noah. He missed, but the referees called a flagrant foul 2, resulting in an ejection and two free throws for Noah with 2.5 seconds remaining.

He hit both, stretching Chicago's lead to 84-65. With a 3-1 lead, the Bulls are trying to close out the series.
