LeBron Crushes Jermaine O’Neal
Great showdown between LeBron and Dwyane “No Band-Aids” Wade last night. LeBron went for 42; Wade for 41. LeBron’s team got the win, thanks, in part to nasty dunk over Jermaine O’Neal. It was a showdown of two of the league’s best players and their leading scorers and it did not disappoint. Unless, of course, you are Miami Heat fan. While LeBron did indeed explode, scoring-wise, against the Heat, it was his running mate, Mo Williams, who helped get the Cavaliers to the finish line by scoring 15 of his 30 points in the decisive fourth quarter.
The dunk in the lead video simply punctuated the Cavaliers dominant fourth quarter where they outscored the Heat 31-18. It also left Cleveland coach Mike Brown stuttering and stammering:
“I thought, I didn’t think, I don’t know, I don’t know how he did it,” Brown said.
I’d say that reaction is par for the course when it comes to LeBron, even for the seasoned basketball veterans like Coach Brown.
