(Newser) – LeBron James scored two painful points last night, suffering a broken nose after slamming down a dunk, reports Sports Illustrated. Oklahoma City defender Serge Ibaka got his hand in James' face during the play, and James tumbled to the court in pain afterward and lay there for a few tense minutes. "The Heat saw its future flash before its eyes," writes George Richards of the Miami Herald. Later, James posted a jokey image to Instagram suggesting he'd have to wear a mask, a la the villain Bain in Batman. He isn't expected to miss many, if any, games. For the record, Miami won 103-81.
