Following a Heat turnover, Collison had a fast break with Danny Granger, and as Granger passed the ball to Collison, Wade essentially tackled him right in the open court.
We already know that Chris Bosh will be out indefinitely with an abdominal strain, but should Wade be suspended for a game as well after this? Check out the video and decide for yourself:

After the game, Wade was pretty unhappy with the way the Pacers celebrated the win, right on Miami's home court.
The easy answer to that: Win, and you won't have to worry about the way the opposing team celebrates a win.
Why didn't they win? As usual, you can take a look directly at LeBron James.
James gets a lot of unfair criticism, and generally I believe people don't understand the overall greatness of his game and his ability.
That caveat aside, he needs to seek professional help, regarding his incredible shrinking act anytime he has a chance to take over a game late in the 4th quarter.
LeBron led his team in points, rebounds, and assists, yet many will look at his performance and focus on the one thing he DIDN'T do: Take the big shot at the end of the game.
In the last 5 minutes of the game, check out the plays that involved LeBron from ESPN's play-by-play from the game:
For those of you keeping score at home, that's 1 point on 1-4 free throw shooting, 0-1 from the field, 2 rebounds, a steal, an assist, and he got blocked by Paul George.
For some players, that type of performance is acceptable (other than the free throws). For LeBron James, 3-time MVP and arguably the most talented athlete on the planet, that's simply not going to cut it.
As great as he is, nights like last night won't help shake the "choker" label.
What's your take? Should Wade be suspended? Is LeBron a choker? Will the Heat be able to beat the Pacers and move on to the conference finals? Let us know what you think.
