LeBron James let the Heat get to his head in a tight game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
The Miami Heat were trailing by eight against the Pacers when LeBron and teammate Mario Chalmers got a little confused on defense and allowed Paul George a wide open look on the three-point line.
The following possession saw Chalmers turn the ball over and then the Pacers hit another three. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra had to stop the play so called a timeout. The 'King' and Chalmers still felt they had to get something off their chest as they both clearly felt that it was the other's fault that George was left open.
Chalmers walked up to a seated LeBron and started saying something to him. The King didn't like what he heard so he suddenly jumped to his feet and went face-to-face with him and Chalmers didn't back down.
The argument got a little heated but was immediately held back by Udonis Haslem and other teammates.
The Miami Heat didn't seem to be bothered by the pair's actions and they went on to win the game. The altercation may have even helped the side because the Heat were able to make a comeback and take the game by three.
