Lance Stephenson gave a choke sign at LeBron James after the latter missed a technical foul during the third quarter of Game 3.

"I was wrong and disrespectful to my teammates, the Miami Heat and their organization," Stephenson told on Saturday. "I'm sorry that I did that. It was very disrespectful.

"(I) try to talk to other players, but in a good way. Get them off their game a little bit but not being disrespectful. I just got out of hand one time, and I'll never do it again."

James said he hadn't seen tape of the incident.

"Lance Stephenson? You want a quote about Lance Stephenson?" James said. "I'm not even going to give him the time. Knock it off."
