MIAMI (AP) — Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says his team isn’t happy that a hard foul against LeBron James in Game 2 against Charlotte wasn’t even reviewed by referees, the latest complaint Miami has levied in how much abuse its star takes during games.

James was leveled by the Bobcats’ Josh McRoberts late in the teams’ Eastern Conference playoff game on Wednesday night. McRoberts was assessed only a common foul at the time, but the NBA on Thursday upgraded that to a flagrant-2 and fined him $20,000.

Spoelstra says the Heat aren’t going into Game 3 on Saturday looking for retribution. “But there are going to be more attacks,” Spoelstra says.

James also wonders why the play wasn’t reviewed, noting that several similar plays in other playoff games were.
