Leandro Barbosa dropped a layup just before the horn to give the Pacers a 54-46 lead at halftime, closing a second quarter that included another altercation involving Granger.

Wade was fouled hard on a drive with 12.6 seconds left by Hibbert. After the whistle, Miami’s frustrated star slapped off the Indiana center’s arm after the two got tangled. Granger didn’t like that and he confronted Wade nose-to-nose in the foul lane.

Wade turned to one official and pleaded to “get him out of my face.”

Granger was slapped with a technical foul for the second straight game.
