Last night the Miami Heat locked up their second seed in the Eastern Conference by beating the Atlanta Hawks, but not before things became testy in the final five minutes of the game. Atlanta’s Zaza Pachulia took Zydrunas Ilgauskas to school with a hard drive through the paint, which Miami's Lithuanian big man didn't like that very much. So he chucked a linedrive directly at Pachulia's back. If this were a playground, Zaza would be out and Ilgauskas would reign supreme as a feared dodgeball overlord. Since it's an NBA basketball game, however, the Miami center was thrown out of the game for losing his temper. Despire the bad blood, Pachulia claims the two are actually friends. He plans to text him since "he probably won’t answer my call right now" to see what all that was about. Translation? The NBA and elementry school have more in common than most would realize.
