Heat silent on Roy Hibbert's claims of dirty play by Shane Battier--South Florida Sun Sentinel
Battier also got into a minor scuffle with Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough in Game 1. The physical play continued with Heat guard Norris Cole being whistled for a foul while trying to drive past Indiana's David West. Cole hit West in the groin area, a play he says was unintentional.

"I don't think they were shots or anything like that," Bosh said. "It's a part of the game. We know some plays are going to be physical."

Mahinmi's foul upgraded

For all the talk of the knee toward the groin area of Pacers center Roy Hibbert by Heat forward Shane Battier in Game 1, and of Norris Cole landing a shot to the same area of Pacers forward David West, the NBA has lowered its hammer on a different play.

The Sun Sentinel learned Friday that the NBA has upgraded a foul by Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi on James, with 11:38 left in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game, from a common foul to a Flagrant 1 foul.

Had that ruling been made at the time of the foul, not only would James have received the two free throws awarded, but the Heat also would have retained possession, which was not the case on the play as called during the game.

No league action was taken on the Battier and Cole plays.
