Cleveland's Tristan Thompson flipped his middle finger toward hecklers on Monday night at the Barclays Center after the Cavaliers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 99–97 win over the Brooklyn Nets.

The Cavs' center tallied his third straight double-double during Monday's win and posted 19 points with 14 rebounds. After preventing Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie from sinking a game-winning three, Thompson turned to hecklers in the crowd and flipped them off while on his way off the court. 

"Get outta here you bum," one fan responded.

"Someone's gotta get that on video," another can be heard saying in TMZ Sports's video.

Despite his own personal performance and the team's win, Thompson still felt disrespected by the fans.

"They better put some respect on my name," Thompson said after the game. 

The Cavaliers (5–18) head back to Cleveland to take on the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, Dec. 5. Tip off is set for 7 p.m. ET.
