Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers seemed to have a rough time on defense against the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night.

Although the Heat won the contest 97-94, Chalmers left Pacers star Paul George open a few times and struggled offensively. And things got heated between Chalmers and LeBron James after another miscommunication on defense that resulted in George sinking a wide open three-pointer.

During the next timeout, and after Chalmers said something in defense of his defense, James stood up and yelled at the point guard while being restrained by a teammate.

Soon after, the Heat rallied back from it deficit and James apologized to Chalmers during an Indian timeout. James said, “Yo Rio, I was wrong, my bad.”

James also publicly apologized to Chalmers on Twitter.
