The first three quarters of Game 2 between the Heat and Pacers didn't go well for Miami. LeBron James struggled, Dwyane Wade struggled and the Heat as a team struggled without having Chris Bosh on the floor.
Early in the fourth quarter, after being frustrated by a non-call on the offensive end, Wade let his frustrations boil over by shoving Darren Collison with his forearm on a trip down the court. The dirty move earned him a flagrant foul and appeared to fire up both teams.
While it's always fun when great players can dial it up when they're angry, there's no need for cheap shots like this. Get angry by getting points on the board, not by trying to take out your opponent. It was rare to see Wade commit such a senseless play, but it shows how the Pacers have gotten under the skin of the Heat players.
