Losing Pittman won't hurt the Heat, anyway, so I'd expect a hefty suspension.

I didn't have any issues with Granger getting in Lebron's face. Lebron isn't blatantly dirty, but on those plays he was trying to sneak in a high elbow. Heck, in yesterday's game he got under Granger on a jump shot. Guys know what they're doing when they get in your landing area.
Getting a little chippy and hard fouls make for good playoff basketball, I have no issue with that. Making no attempt to play the ball and trying to hurt another player is totally different, and that's what Haslem and Pittman did. Pittman's being way worse obviously.
And like Chuck said, I cannot believe Stephenson never went down. That's crazy.
Born Ready was also Born Steady.And like Chuck said, I cannot believe Stephenson never went down. That's crazy.
I turned on the game for a couple of minutes and can honestly say my rec refs would do a better job. I know stars get star treatment, but I didn't know they get an extra step out of bounds? The flagarant fouls were an embarassment. At this point the NBA is on the same scale with the WWE as far as being believable.
13% (4 for 30) from distance and 47% from the free throw line... Get em next year Lance
It's about as dirty as dirty can get.
4 for 30? I think Wade would go at least go 7 for 30 on those ridiculous step back off balance fade-away 3's he throws up there from time to time. In terms of degree of difficulty, those shots are way up there. 4-30?? I thought the Pacers were well coached. If you're 4-30, get in a passing lane or rebound please and get your good hustle stats up.
