It didn't stop with breathing in his ear. In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday, Lance Stephenson decided to give LeBron James a little, literal slap in the face. James did not appreciate it:

It's early, but these two have already been very physical with each other and they haven't stopped jawing. It feels like it's personal now.

The Heat lead the Pacers 24-13 at the end of the first quarter. James has 11 points on 5-for-7 shooting, while Stephenson has six points on 2-for-4 shooting. Miami finished the quarter on a 22-4 run.
