LeBron James apologized to teammate Tristan Thompson after yelling at him in a huddle during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 135-130 double-overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Moments after Cavs forward Kevin Love hit a key 3-pointer for a four-point lead with 26 seconds left, euphoria on the Cavs’ bench was zapped when James and Thompson went back and forth. James yelled at Thompson as they were walking to the bench and waved off coach Tyronn Lue when he attempted to calm James’ down. Thompson snapped back at James, exchanging words in the huddle throughout a timeout.

Immediately after the game, James expressed remorse.”I have to do a better job of not showing up my teammates out on the floor. I had the right intentions in my mind, but I had the wrong intentions come out of my mouth,” James told Fox Sports Ohio on the court after the game ended. “I take full responsibility for that as the leader of the team. So I got to be a lot better at that and be able to keep that in-house in the locker room and when we’re watching film.”
