A DOUBLE DOSE OF SETBACK


Shaquille O'Neal sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of the Miami Heat's 105-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night. Jermaine O'Neal was celebrating and Shaquille O'Neal was on crutches. Shaquille O'Neal was so disturbed by his injury and the team’s loss that he ordered his bodyguard, Jerome Crawford, to cordon the doors of the Heat's locker room so that no one would see him leaving the arena on crutches. Indiana's O'Neal scored 27 points, six in the final three minutes to help the Pacers recover from wasting a 14-point second-half lead and beat the Miami Heat 105-102. Shaquille O'Neal dropped from sight halfway through the fourth quarter after landing atop Ron Artest's foot and spraining his right ankle. The Heats’ were having a chance to tie the game at the end with Dwyane Wade who had 31 points and 10 assists for the Heat, but his 3-pointer to tie flustered in panic as the buzzer sounded, allowing the Indiana Pacers to escape with a 105-102 victory to improve to 2-0.
