Heat's Dexter Pittman commits flagrant foul on Pacers' Lance Stephenson

The most flagrant of the flagrant fouls delivered in Game 5 of the Heat-Pacers series came just before the final buzzer, when Miami center Dexter Pittman threw a flying forearm at Indiana guard Lance Stephenson with 19.4 seconds remaining.

As with an earlier foul by Heat teammate Udonis Haslem, the officials only whistled Pittman for a Flagrant 1, but the outrage on Twitter from media members seemed even greater.

To compound matters, Pittman apparently winked after the infraction. If both Pittman and Haslem are suspended for Game 6, the Heat -- already without Chris Bosh -- will be seriously short on big men.

Meantime, Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD offered this update on Stephenson:
