LeBron James turned in an MVP-level performance in Phoenix on Tuesday, finishing with 37 points, nine rebounds, three assists and five steals. Almost all of the steals were like this one — jumping the passing lane to create a live ball turnover, which resulted in a thunderous slam in transition.
This dunk was actually the second of two that came on consecutive possessions. The one that came before it was almost more impressive, considering the way James effortlessly swung the ball to the other side of the floor, then made a killer cut to the basket before Toney Douglas (who got the start in place of Dwyane Wade) found him for the two-handed flush.
