Heat's O'Neal shines in victory over former team

Heat's O'Neal shines in victory over former teamINDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Jermaine O'Neal claims he's not angry with the Indiana Pacers for trading him before last season.

He might have fooled his old fans. He had 22 points and 12 rebounds against his former team, and the Miami Heat beat the Pacers 96-83 on Friday night.

O'Neal was the Pacers' best player before the franchise fell apart following the brawl between Pacers players and Detroit Pistons fans in 2004. The Pacers traded O'Neal to Toronto before the 2008-09 season as they focused on rebuilding with younger players.

O'Neal says he has moved on.

"I don't have any animosity with this organization anymore," O'Neal said. "I told myself that I would let that go, I would close that door, close that chapter."

Still, he was animated throughout the game, drawing a technical foul for hanging on the rim after a dunk in the second quarter. He said that was more about finally having healthy knees than showing up the Pacers.
