The NBA announced that it will review a number of plays from game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. The one that has caught the attention of...everyone...is D-Wade's flying elbow to the head of Lance Stephenson.
So Wade runs down the lane on a transition play, possibly looking at ball carrier Paul George on the right wing. Lance Stephenson tries to provide a bit of an obstruction by pedaling into Wade's path. Wade leaps into the air, throws his right forearm into Stephenson's temple. Stephenson crumbles. He gets up, and after play is halted on a reach in foul, he doubles over.

Paul George absolutely annihilated Miami Heat forward Chris Andersen with a dunk late in the third quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The Indiana Pacers forward was being guarded by LeBron James with about 10 seconds left in the quarter. He went left, blew by James, and then took off and dunked over Birdman with a spectacular throwdown.
Here’s your posterized...

What happened: A regular-season loss at Indiana woke up the Miami Heat. Maybe the same has happened with a playoff defeat to the Pacers.
After falling Feb. 1 at Indiana, the Heat reeled off 27 straight regular-season wins. On Sunday night, they bounced back from a Friday home loss to wallop the Pacers, 114-96, in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse...

Poor Roy Hibbert, all he wanted to do was inbound the ball near the end of the first quarter during game two of the Heat/Pacers series.

After a Game 2 win and one possession away in Game 1 from being up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat, the Indiana Pacers’ “Big Five”confidence is sky high heading back to Indiana for Games 3 & 4.
According to ESPN:

The Indiana Pacers let the Miami Heat off the hook in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and Pacers’ center Roy Hibbert is already complaining about foul play from one of the senior members of the Heat. Look, we are all for calling Shane Battier “Captain McMasterflop.” After all, Battier attended Flop U, and Coach K most likely shows highlights of Battier from his Blue...

It's been a rough Eastern Conference Finals playoff series so far for Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert. So far against the Miami Heat, Hibbert has been benched in crunch time and kneed in the groin.

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with a Shane Battier knee that landed in his sweet spot.
Game 2: Indiana Pacers 97, Miami Heat 93. Not the best night to be a mohawk wearing big man in Miami. Speaking of Birds, Larry sure did a fine job building the Pacers. Paul George is a star and Larry got him at #10 in the draft. Roy Hibbert was drafted at #17 (Yes I know Toronto technically drafted him, just like Boston technically drafted Jeff Green and the Suns technically drafted...
