Video: LeBron James and Danny Granger double-technical after kerfuffle in Pacers-Heat Game 2

By Matt Moore | NBA writer
Pacers-Heat is getting testy. Moments after Dwyane Wade gave Darren Collison a flagrant foul in the fourth quarter of Game 2, Danny Granger came over the top of LeBron James, landing with his elbow around James' neck. In response, James elbowed Granger in the ribs and then started to swing towards his head. You wonder if he had connected if we would have another Metta World Peace and James Harden situation.



Granger and James both received technical fouls for the incident, and initially personal fouls, but those were later rescinded. Had James connected with that higher elbow, it could have been bad. You can understand James being upset because of the contact to his upper body and neck, but the league is really sensitive towards elbow swipes to the head. As long as the league considers that he restrained himself to stop it, he won't face any further punishment.

This thing's getting personal.
