[1]Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert had called out Miami Heat forward Shane Battier for below-the-belt play. LeBron James had fouled out in Game 4, his fifth foul-out in 10 NBA seasons. Players on both sides had landed fines for flopping.

Players have described the rough-and-tumble environment as unsurprising; by Game 5 in a playoff series that sends the winner to the NBA Finals, of course both teams are doing whatever it takes to gain any advantage.
