LeBron James follows powerful block with powerful dunk to put away Spurs (video)

Jun 9, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

 

Two offensive possessions after he blocked Tiago Splitter’s dunk attempt, LeBron James had his own dunk attempt. Nobody blocked this one.

That put the Heat up by 24 points, and they never looked back.

    It’s been so nice on here the last 2 days not having to hear the arrogant nonsense from the bandwagoners. Looking forward to seeing the real big 3 pound espn’s 3 yet again. After game 2 look for a spike in Spurs’ jersey sales in the South Florida area as the bandwagoners do what they do best.

      @1972…Sorry looser and hatorade drinker. You spent the time here in South Beach and fill up yourself with those million reasons that you got to keep hating on us. You don’t want us to have “all that” nature can provide and a “top-rich product in White Hot Miami Heat”! (It’s called: destroying the competition…). I don’t blame your sensless idiocy.

        Re-read it. I copied a post from our favorite, CB13 from after Game 1 and pasted it on this one. I wanted to copy and paste about 20 more of his ridiculous posts from the last 2 says, but I was enjoying all tbe postgame coverage too much. Funny you thought I’m anti-Heat.

    Best 37 seconds of the playoffs so far

    Congrats to the heat, they finally did what they were supposed to do, win at home. I know heat fans and basketball knowledge don’t usually go together so before all the heat fans start talking sweep, heat win the series 4 games to 0 again let’s recap game 2. James gets held to under 20 for the 2nd strait game, bosh and wade score 12 and 10 pts and don’t contribute much (story for most of playoffs), Parker and Duncan have their worst games of the playoffs and Manu only takes 5 shots, also given the fact the heat turned the ball over 6 times (won’t happen again). Don’t expect the spurs to play like that again, but do expect wade and bosh to keep being mediocre, spurs still hold the momentum, they can look at this as a bad game and know the next 3 are at home. spurs still win in 6.

      What a stupid post.

      You’re allowed to hate the Heat but a post like that puts your basketball knowledge about on par with most Miami/LA fans.

      Wade was fine in the first half and Bosh had a very good game. He was opening the lane by hitting shots, rebounding well, actively switching on PnRs to slow Parker and playing decent defense on Duncan (although most of Duncan’s problems were self-inflicted.)

      All you did was look at a box score and assume Wade/Bosh had bad games, when they actually played pretty well and just weren’t needed in the 4th quarter.

      You and charles barkley who claimed he played basketball (got to check the archives…) are the ones who made such a world’s worst ‘moronnesque-idiot claim’ of all-time: that the Spurs will sweep the Heat 4-0.
      We, Heat fans, know and respect the game so much…we don’t pound our chest and make barking noise like you all the “hatorade drinkers”: it’s 29 team fans, all the media, etc. Against only one Miami Heat Nation. “If God is with us, who can be against us..’

        I think if the 7 or 8 fouls that weren’t called on the Heat when Tony Parker got beaten to a pulp had been called, the Spurs would be on their way to winning in 4. Both Spurs and Heat fans knew something screwy was going to happen when Joey Crawford was announced.

        The refs didn’t cost you that game, you got beat. Own up to it.

      • gmsingh123 - Jun 12, 2013 at 7:21 AM

        Yeah, now we should talk about what a real blowout is.

    Just in case you’re keeping track, in the course of under one minute LeBrom had an all-time classic block on a guy 5 inches taller than him, a cross court pin-point assist , a steal off one the best point guards of all time, and an earth-shattering thunder dunk. In the NBA Finals.

    I triple-dog dare you to top that.

    Yep, this was the dunk that put the game away. That 22 point lead just wasn’t safe.
