Miami HEAT Advance to NBA Finals

It was like taking candy from a baby. The defending NBA champions Miami HEAT easily defeated the Indiana Pacers 99-76 in game 7 of the Eastern Conference series Monday night to advance to the NBA Finals against the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs.

With the HEAT comfortably in the lead by double digits late in the 4th quarter, Indiana coach Frank Vogel emptied his bench. Reserve forward Jeff Pendergraph -- who played just 3 minutes in the entire series -- wanted to make the most of his 2 minutes in the spotlight.

The 6 ft 9 in. Pendergraph set a hard screen on 6' 2" Heat guard Norris Cole forcing Cole to fight through the screen. Pendergraph shoved Cole who responded by assuming a boxer's stance. Both players were ejected.

Miami HEAT Advance to NBA Finals

Things really got interesting when Pendergraph returned to the Pacers bench. The reserve bench player got into a jawing match with rapper Flo Rida's manager who had an expensive courtside seat.

After threatening to see Pendergraph after the game, Flo Rida's manager was politely escorted from the arena by Miami police officers.

The trash talking incident was explained in further detail by TNT's spiffy sideline reporter Craig Sager.

"It actually was Flo Rida's manager who was ejected," Sager said. "He and Pendergraph had been going back and forth. He got to be such a distraction that the officials came over and tried to eject him. He wanted to stay put. However, Flo Rida said, 'You're my manager, but you've got to get out of here now.'"

Sager was only half right. Flo Rida's obscene gold and diamond encrusted Jesus piece was more of a distraction than his manager was!

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is Thursday at American Airlines Arena in Miami.

      Joseline feels threatened I think. That's why she went off like she did when Che Crack Mac came to appologize. I think she was really "genuine" when she was talking to her. Joseline was really whack for what she did because she's still in the same spot she was in when she FIRST left de trip cluh.

      I think it's "sweet" how steebie is "trying" to act right. But Joseline is going to make him go back to his old ways, if it ain't an act. :lol:

      Mimi was over the top at the video shoot, but I can see why she was pissed last night. You can't be MY FRIEND and be questioning my man's sexuality on national radio. If you have real concerns, bring them me and then stfu. I can't even be mad at Mimi for approaching K after het show bc K stays doing things inappropriately. My only issue is with Mimi...don't stand there and get hit with flowers THEN try to act bad in the hallway, after the fact
