For a second consecutive night, the Miami Heat made sure they weren’t going to let their offensive rebounding woes deter them from a victory.
Just when you thought it was safe to leave the house, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James combine for their latest aerial assault; an off-the-backboard alley-oop in transition against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
This is the second off-glass alley-oop the two have completed, as they previously threw one against the Sacramento Kings last year, which featured James throwing it down in reverse.
Long bouts of inactivity on both ends of the court? Lottery teams keeping up with the league’s best team for 48 minutes? A desperate late attempt to erase over nearly 40 minutes of mediocre basketball?
Sounds like the Miami Heat won an early regular season game.
You knew it was coming. After Dwyane Wade raised the bar with his videobomb cartwheel of LeBron James’ post-game interview in Monday’s win over Phoenix, LeBron knew he would have to find a way to top Wade.
Although he’s done it before, LeBron’s giant, grinning face appearing in the middle Wade’s interview following the Heat’s win over Cleveland comes close to topping Wade’s cartwheel and Bosh’s numerous memorable videobombs.
And Dwyane’s deadpan stare into LeBron’s still-grinning face after he slowly turns around? Icing.
Wrote this over at Dimemag.com. It’s a reflection on Michael Beasley’s early start with the Heat and how well he’s integrated himself within the system and his acclimation within the rotation. The numbers will startle you.
Of course it was going to be one of those games.
Three straight wins. Three straight blowouts. Three straight games where LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade weren’t needed to close out a victory.
