Neither Pacers coach Frank Vogel nor Heat coach Erik Spoelstra expected the league to hand down a suspension with a berth in the NBA Finals at stake. Wade explained to reporters before the game that he was not surprised by the decision. "I wasnt worried because it wasnt intentional," he said. "All I was trying to do was get out of the way of him trying to set a screen." Wade then cut off questions, saying he only wanted to talk about Game 3, which is Sunday night at Indiana. He will be in the starting lineup. The play occurred in the fourth quarter of Indianas Game 2 victory when Stephenson was running down the court on a fast-break. Troy Brown Jr. Jersey. Wade jumped into the air and hit Stephenson in the back of the head with his arm, knocking Stephenson to the floor. No foul was called on the play. Spoelstra didnt complain about the decision. "We take it for what it is, we cant control what the league decides," he said. "We just have to move on."

"I think we all know thats what replay is for," James said. Miami guard Mario Chalmers also will start after injuring his shoulder in both Games 1 and 2 in Miami. ' ' '
