In Sunday’s close 97-93 victory over the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat star LeBron James finished a first half alley oop from Dwyane Wade in unconventional fashion, by jumping OVER Bulls’ back up point guard John Lucas, who is generously listed at 5’11″. Check out the highlight:
That’s something you would typically see in a dunk contest, not in an intense battle for Eastern Conference supremacy. #6 finished with 35 points while reigning MVP Derrick Rose paced the Bulls with 34, although Rose missed two free throws that would have tied the score at 95 in the last minute (James also missed two free throws that would have iced the game, for good measure).
The win gives Miami a 1-0 edge in the season series. The Bulls will have an opportunity to avenge the loss when the Heat travel to Chicago March 14th.
