While we get to see an alley-oop dunk from LeBron James in pretty much every game he plays, usually connecting with Dwyane Wade as his assist man, sometimes it’s a bit more special than usual. Maybe it’s beating the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, maybe it’s being a one handed dunk. Whatever it is, it was special.
By beating the Knicks 99-93, the Miami Heat reached a franchise record 14 consecutive wins, but possibly more importantly, it was their first win over the Knicks this season after dropping two games by 20 points earlier in the campaign.
James led the scoring for the Heat with another excellent game, scoring 29 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and adding 7 assists and 3 steals as the Heat improved to 43-14, tied for the best record in the NBA, while opening a 7.5 game lead over the New York Knicks who are third in the Eastern conference.
