Miami Heat forward LeBron James was left with a furious look on his face after being accidentally tripped up by referee Mark Ayotte during Wednesday night's defeat to the Indiana Pacers.

The 29-year-old was dribbling around a Chris Bosh screen on the perimeter when he was brought to the ground after tripping over Ayotte's foot. Despite still managing to find a teammate with a pass, LeBron was clearly unimpressed, and spent the next 20 seconds sporting a face like thunder.

The four-time MVP was powerless to prevent his side slumping to a 84-83 defeat at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, with the trip taking place in the first quarter and contributing towards a shot-clock violation against Miami.

But did this trip really have an impact on the final result? Could LeBron and co. have won the match had Ayotte not intervened? It's highly doubtful, of course, but you never know.
