VIDEO: Heat And Lakers Get Into Shoving Match, Dwyane Wade Fouls Out Earl On Questionable Call

Heading into Sunday's big Lakers and Heat showdown, much had been made of potential payback for Kobe Bryant's broken nose, which was the result of a hard Dwyane Wade foul in the All Star Game last week in Orlando. There hasn't been much physical play so far, although there was a little choppiness at the end of the third quarter as LeBron James and Troy Murphy got into a very mild shoving match. Teammates joined in but there was little action.

In the fourth, Wade became the first Heat player to foul out in 88 games, the longest streak in the league by far. Wade' s final foul was very suspect, as he was whistled for going over the back. It was just one of a few questionable whistles on Wade, who was called for a couple offensive fouls and a cheap bump of Kobe Bryant 70 feet from the hoop. He fouled out with over five minutes remaining, ending an incredibly frustrating day for the All-Star.
