The playoffs are always an intense situation, and it is certainly not uncommon for emotions to boil over every once in a while. That is exactly what happened during the third quarter of game three of the Pacers/Heat playoff series between superstar Dwayne Wade and coach Erik Spoelstra.
After Wade missed a jump shot, Pacers guard George Hill converted on a quick layup going the other way. Apparently, coach Spoelstra was upset with something Wade had done on the possession, and let him know as much, but Wade was not very receptive to say the least.

Dwyane Wade augmented his crap game against the Pacers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Thursday by confronting coach Erik Spoelstra during a timeout. Wade had just missed a three and was late getting back on defense when the timeout was called.
