Heat forward Shane Battier was called for an offensive foul for this knee to Pacers center Roy Hibbert in Wednesday's Game 1. (AP)
♦ The Pacers were frustrated after their Game 1 of their series vs. the Heat on Wednesday and it wasn’t just because they lost in overtime. Indiana players weren’t happy with some aggressive/dirty play by Miami, and they let their feelings be known.
Shane Battier was the primary target of the complaints, in part due to one play on which he drove on Roy Hibbert and kneed the Pacers center in the groin area, earning an offensive foul.
Tweeted Hibbert: U can knee or kick me every time u drive 2the rim. I’ll be there 2protect the rim. That wasn’t inadvertent. Battier knew what he was doing.
Battier also scuffled with Tyler Hansbrough, at one point appearing to throw an elbow while the two were battling for a rebound.
Meanwhile, Pacers coach Frank Vogel insisted his team took plenty of positives from the heartbreaking loss as they prepare for Friday night’s Game 2.
“Very encouraged,” he said. “Our belief in our ability to beat this team has strengthened after Game 1. Our familiarity in the playoffs, in the playoff series grows with each day, grows with each game, and there’s a lot of things we can definitely do better.”
♦ Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez didn’t impress much with his three-interception effort at Wednesday’s OTAs, and now comes a report from CBS Sports’ Mike Freeman that Sanchez’ teammates are ready to move on. An unidentified Jet estimated that 80-90 percent of the team wants someone else taking snaps.
“Everyone on the team likes Mark personally, but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,” the player said.
♦ Retired Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis announced plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro — the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at more than 19,000 feet above sea level — next month to raise awareness for clean water projects in East Africa.
“I am so FIRED UP for this adventure, but until then, I need your help to bring clean water wells to thousands of children and families,” Lewis said in a statement.
The 38-year-old Lewis will be an NFL analyst for ESPN this season.
