The Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat have had a hotly contested series, complete with altercations between the teams' stars Danny Granger and LeBron James.

Granger, for his part, told ESPN that he doesn't plan to back down from LeBron.

"That's part of basketball. That's part of two men battling," Granger said of the altercations. "I'm not going to back down from anybody and he's not going to back down from anybody. And when you get that, you'll get some altercations." The Pacers have a surprising 2-1 series lead.
