Early in the fourth quarter of Game 1 between the Heat and the Pacers, Mario Chalmers shoved C.J. Watson as he elevated to score on a fast break, and predictably, Watson went flying into the table situated along the baseline.
The call was a personal foul for the earlier contact Chalmers made on the play, with a flagrant-one tacked on following the review by the officials.
Really a silly foul by Chalmers here, considering the Heat were surging a bit and had trimmed a lead that reached as many as 19 points to within a more manageable margin.
