Video: Rudy Gay dribbles around LeBron, Heat defense, dunks

Nov 12, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

This may be my favorite dunk of the young season — Rudy Gay gets around LeBron James off the dribble, goes through pretty much the entire Heat defense and throws it down.

Gay had 21 points in this one and the Grizzlies showed how good they can be — Zach Randolph had 18 points on the inside, Wayne Ellington had 25 and knocked down 7 three-pointers, and then there was Gay slashing to the rim. The Heat defense has not been sharp this young season (not that it has mattered much) but the Grizzlies really exposed it for a night.

    ^^^^^^^
    Don’t see what about this story constitutes a love fest.

    But…. a hat tip to Gay from a Heat fan for a rediculous drive and dunk. And credit to the grizzlies, they took advantage of their opportunities and played a great game.

    For one day at least, the state of Tennesse made both our teams look real bad. The good news is that only one of those teams actually is bad.

    More good news is that the Heat have another game tonight. Lets have some fun!
