INDIANAPOLIS -- Pacers reserve guard Lance Stephenson has apologized to his coach for making a choking gesture toward LeBron James during Indiana's Game 3 win over Miami.

After James missed a technical foul in the second half, Stephenson wrapped his hands around his throat to mock the league MVP. Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Saturday that Stephenson told him he was sorry about his actions. Vogel said Stephenson "knows it was wrong and I agreed with him 100 per cent that it was wrong."

Vogel said Stephenson knows "he was over the line and made a mistake." Vogel likes his players to be enthusiastic on the bench, but doesn't what them "to go over the top."

The Pacers have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series heading into Sunday's Game 4.
