Ray Allen started in place of slumping Mario Chalmers, a desperate lineup change by coach Erik Spoelstra, but that didn’t work, either. Nothing worked but LeBron James. “Not disappointed in any of my teammates,” James said afterward – even though he hadn’t been asked about any of his teammates. Miami Herald

After a personal chef was shot dead at the South Beach club Mansion, the crowd scattered, jammed exits, and ran out onto Washington Avenue and into nearby clubs where patrons blended in with the dancing masses. The chaos and cleanup that followed left the crime scene poisoned. In the aftermath of Tuesday’s shooting and the fight that preceded it inside the club’s VIP section, tables were knocked around, couch pillows were tossed about, and glasses, bottles and napkins with potential fingerprints went airborne.

“The crime scene was contaminated,” said Miami Beach police spokesman Bobby Hernandez. “A crime scene tells a story.” Item contamination “takes away from the narrative.” Adding to the difficulty of the police investigation: the death of Antaun Teasley, 42, a celebrated chef who cooked for professional athletes that include Miami Heat point guards Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. Teasley was found with a bullet in his upper torso by the club’s promoter, a personal friend, near an exit at Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave. He was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, where he died. “It’s like taking pieces of the puzzle away. It could be anything from a club bottle with glass that contains prints, to blood spats,” Hernandez said. “What has really set us back, too, is that the victim passed away.” Miami Herald
