LeBron James’ Reverse And-1 Dunk Sums Up Game 4 Between the Heat and Pacers (Video)
After losing to the Heat last night in Miami and falling into a 3-1 series hole, some of the Indiana Pacers were blaming the referees for their woes.
Do they have a case? There’s just no way to wade in on that debate without being accused of bias, so I’m not going to try.
Here’s what I know for sure: the 32 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, and two steals from LeBron James probably had something to do with the outcome. The world’s best basketball player was the best player on the floor last night, and the Pacers just could not contain him.
Case in point? This sick reverse and-1 dunk late in the second quarter. LeBron blows right past George Hill and avoids a really lame last-ditch effort from Roy Hibbert by going underneath the basket. Then he gets the foul because Hill gave him a weak swipe on his right shoulder.
Judging from this play, I wouldn’t say the Pacers’ problem was being called for too many fouls. I’d say it was not making the most of their fouls.
