Kane Fitzgerald, the only referee to have ever thrown LeBron James out of a game, gave a technical foul to Darren Collison because Collison waved his arm dismissively towards the ref after he was called for a foul on George Hill. I mean, this is Game 7. That's a pretty tough call to make.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Cavs up 54-43 at the half. LeBron James has 26 points on 11-for-16 shooting, 5 assists, 4 rebounds. Tristan Thompson has 10 points and 9 rebounds. Kevin Love has 6 points and 4 rebounds. Darren Collison leads Indiana with 17 points on 6-for-7 shooting. Cleveland is shooting just 43.8 percent compared to Indiana's 54.8 percent, but the Pacers have 8 turnovers and the Cavs only have one.
