As the final horn in a Game 6 loss to the Indiana Pacers was sounding, LeBron James walked toward several of his Miami Heat teammates to shake some hands and share a couple of quick words. His message was clear: Get ready for Game 7.
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert apologized Sunday morning for using a gay slur and cursing during his news conference after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Indiana staggered Miami with one more big punch Saturday night.

Since the Big Three came together in Miami in 2010, the comment has repeatedly been made that center Chris Bosh is the most important player on the team. If that’s true, then the most important player has completely disappeared at a most inopportune time.
The Miami Heat return to the AmericanAirlines Arena Wednesday to begin preparations for a critical Game 5 matchup in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat has a huge headache in the form of Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert and no way to really solve the problem.
Roy Hibbert had 23 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson added 20 points, and the Indiana Pacers charged back late to beat the Miami Heat 99-92 on Tuesday night and tie the Eastern Conference finals at 2-2.
The Miami Heat are going to have quite a challenge in front of them from the opening tip of Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami must find a way to once again play a near perfect half against the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers.
