Heat lose edge when going gets rough

INDIANAPOLIS -- LeBron James was frustrated with the officiating, Chris Bosh questioned the late-game offensive execution and the Miami Heat had to cope without Dwyane Wade because of an injury. These issues sound familiar? They should. Because a season’s worth of issues the Heat have struggled to overcome for months combined to derail them in one night on the way to Wednesday’s 84-83 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The biggest source of the Heat’s frustrations was the physical play they felt benefited the Pacers.

LeBron content to win scoreboard

This is an excerpt from today's edition of the Daily Dime: CLEVELAND -- LeBron James had the hammer raised on his former team Tuesday night, the chance to inflict another lasting scar with the sort of record-setting performance that would hang on the books for years. Maybe it was mercy, maybe it was maturity and maybe there was just some pride from the injury-ravaged Cleveland Cavaliers. It was hard to figure exactly what happened, but James uncharacteristically stood down and perhaps allowed a chance at a record to pass and left satisfied that his Miami Heat took a 100-96 victory.

LeBron James (back spasms) out tonight at Boston; Udonis Haslem starting

LeBron James and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra did not say anything about it, but the signs were there. James was knocking down a McFlurry and a bag of McDonald’s outside his locker before the game. He was not wrapped in tape and the trainer was not contorting his body 17 different ways like he usually does for pre-game stretching. James will sit out tonight at Boston (7:30 p.m., Sun Sports) for what would have been his only appearance at TD Garden this season. The team listed his injury as back spasms, but there was no mention of that when Spoelstra and James spoke to the media shortly before...
