Dwyane Wade Accuses Pacers Of Excessive Celebration

The Miami Heat lost to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, which led to the Pacers celebrating their second-round playoff victory. Completely normal, right?

Not according to Heat star Dwyane Wade, who accused the Pacers of excessive celebration after the game. "I heard they wanted to be like the Dallas Mavericks," Wade said, referencing something Pacers coach Frank Vogel said that was broadcasted during Game 1 of the series. "I saw their little celebration at the end of the game, so I don't know if they expected to win."

Clearly Wade is taking a shot at the Pacers being underdogs, but is Wade just being a poor loser?

Here's video of the celebration:

I mean, just look at how excessive that is. So disrespectful of the Pacers, you guys.
