Heat's LeBron James Disputes Calls After Fouling out of Game 4
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James took exception to four of the six fouls called on him after the Heat forward fouled out of a 99-92 Game 4 loss to the Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday. Game 4 marked just the fifth time James has committed six fouls in an NBA game during his 10-year career and just the second time he has fouled out since joining the Heat in 2010. James received his sixth foul with 56 seconds remaining in regulation when he was whistled for an illegal screen on Lance Stephenson. He attempted to set a screen for Dwyane Wade at the top of the key and approached Stephenson from the left. James stuck out his left leg and stepped on Stephenson's left foot as the Pacers guard attempted to fight over the top of the screen. Wade crossed over from his right to his left, ignoring the screen, but James was whistled for his sixth foul of the game anyway, necessitating the automatic ejection.
