07:28 AM ET 12.19 | Simply, LeBron James wanted in. The decision for [James] to play against the Pacers came just a few minutes before Heat coach Erik Spoelstra was required to turn in his pregame lineup card. After two straight days of treatment on his sprained left ankle, James met with Spoelstra and the Heat's training staff 45 minutes before tipoff and the group decided there wasn't a risk of further injury. James rolled his ankle in the third quarter against the Utah Jazz on Monday. "I'm nowhere near 100 percent ... but I'm good enough where I can be productive," James said. "If I felt like I was going to hurt the team [Wednesday], I wouldn't be playing." In the past, James has missed games two days after twisting his ankle, but he admitted he had extra "incentive" to play against the Pacers despite lingering soreness.

Big deal! It was such a big story yesterday from all the media and he is milking it. The guy came out and play and looked like he had no injury. Just move on and don't make a big deal out of it.

For someone this shady as Lebron it's hard to believe anything that comes from him... he played last night and the refs helped Miami as always..

your a true troller if you believe that.
The heat got more fouls called on them, and the pacers went to the line more.
Granted Hibbert was in foul trouble but Bron had 3 fouls early on, Bosh also had quick fouls.
The heat didn't get to the line until the second half, so spare me of your foolishness, being that the knicks finally won a game in a long time!

A good upset win for the Heat.

Now I know you didn't watch the game.. or watched it with the TV off and the sound muted.

you're truly as stupid as you look.
I didn't watch the game?
I saw every single second of it.
From Bron picking up 3 quick fouls, to Bosh picking up two quick fouls, to them hardly calling fouls on the pacers.
To Bron and Chalmers arguing.
To Wade being amazing, to Bosh nailing the 3 to tie, to Allen nailing a 3 to take the lead back since the first quarter.
So I watched the entire game, you're just a bitter but hurt hater, who wishes your team could make the freaking finals with that chucker Melo.

More than the Miami win, it is the Indy loss that should be worrisome. They had like a 8-point lead with 4 mins to go and couldn't hold on. That is something they have to work on for big games.

Dear Blogger.. thanks for proving yourself to me even though I don't deserve it. Now let's stop the hate and spread some love here... I'm glad your team won. Good luck to them in their quest for number 3 and have a blessed day yourself... I love you. Just so you know I'm married to a woman so keep your fantasies in check before replying. Cheers!

December 19, 2013  10:43 AM ET

no one cares & no one will give you any sympathy, bro.

so you're the only one in the world that has found a good woman to be by your side?
Fantasies huh?
please find something constructive to do!
I'm hardly on this site cause I got a woman, you are on here all day.
So you keep it moving with all that.

How about you got yourself... you don't have to let a woman define yourself.. I threw that out there so I don't mislead you or anyone on. A man saying I love you to another man can be misconstrued so no pun intended... by the way were you her first?

nope you were here first.
the love statement really doesn't matter, I know your style by now and you haven't changed.
So moving forth!

The 3 time Eastern Conferences Champions winning a home game against another Eastern Conference team is an upset win?

That doesn't make any sense my friend.

that was clearly a troll....on second thought, Indy has the better record though

He may be a Pacer fan. Not sure.

It's going to be a great playoff series when those two hook up again. They went 7 games last year. I suspect that is when Miami will finally take Oden out of mothballs and use him.
