The Heat/Pacers series is officially out of control. Towards the end of the game tonight, Heat forward Dexter Pittman got a little payback on Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, who flashed the choke sign after LeBron James missed a pair of free throws during Game 3 of the series. But, he went waaaaaaay over the line, and…yeah. This wasn't necessary. Like, at all. As a result of the foul, Stephenson is currently being tested for a concussion and he may have an injured collarbone as well.

Payback is one thing. This was just dirty.
