LeBron James got into a heated debate with his teammate Tristan Thompson last night during the game against the Indiana Pacers. It happened on the Cavaliers' bench with 26.5 seconds left in the second overtime, and it looked that James was furious at Thompson.

Fortunately, this incident didn't affect the outcome of the game, as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Pacers. It was a tough game that was played for 58 games, with neither team giving up until the final buzzer. However, the defending NBA champions emerged as victors, with a 5-point win over their division rivals.

LeBron James takes blame for the incident with Tristan Thompson

James, who led the Cavaliers to a big win last night, blamed himself for the incident with Thompson. The four-time MVP said that he has to do a better job when confronting his teammates who don't play well, and that he shouldn't do it out on the floor, but rather in the locker room.

"I had the right intentions in my mind but I had the wrong intentions came out of my mouth, so I take full responsibility for that as the leader of the team. I gotta be a lot better with that and keep that in house, in the locker room," LeBron said. He had every right to be upset at Tristan Thompson, but he showed his frustration in a wrong way.

Tristan Thompson didn't comment much about the incident as he is ready to move on.

"We're family. A little miscommunication. Move forward," said the big man after the game.
