Video: Dwyane Wade’s no look ally-oop to LeBron James

Mar 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were putting on a clinic in Portland on Thursday night. They combined for 71 points on just 55 shots, they were forces of nature on defense and the Trail Blazers really stood no chance.

And in the open court, there is nothing like these two guys. That is one heck of a finish.

Over All-Star weekend, Chris Bosh described the Heat’s new system as being good for them because it takes the thinking out of the game and has them playing more by instinct. You watch a game like this, plays like the ally-oop above, and you see what he means.

    That was a pretty sick play. That said, is it really necessary for LeBron to stare down players every time he makes a dunk that he’s not guarded on? Pretty intimidating for a man who is SCARED to join the dunk contest.

      Really? You had to find one thing out of that clip to complain about Lebron? Really is getting tired. Enjoy the man’s game for crying out loud.

      Carlos Boozer got a T for doing that the other night.
      Guess it depends on who you are.

        Blake and Lebron do it every game, congrats, you threw down a dunk in the second quarter… act like you’ve been there and go play defense

    Just curious……after stealing the ball and gaining possession; at what point is Dwayne Wade obligated, by rule, to put the ball on the floor and begin dribbling? Looks like a blatant walk to me.

    The NBA is fan-tastic!! Did you see that dunk?!!?

      While Wade commonly carries the ball (as do many superstars, including LeBron, Kobe and more), I only counted 2 steps.

        You’re allowed two steps in making a direct move to the basket. You can’t simply take two steps anywhere/anytime. He gains possession just outside the three-point arc and doesn’t put the ball down until halfcourt (after switching the ball from one hand to the other). He walked.

    That was a SICK play. Two best players in the lague.
