Dwyane Wade Goes Deep to LeBron James for Oop After Jump Ball
LBJ completes the long ball.
Dwyane Wade threw another deep ball to LeBron James in the third quarter of the Miami Heat’s 114-108 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. And as usual, LBJ caught the long bomb with ease before softly laying it in.
Who says football season’s over?
The impressive play started innocently enough, with Udonis Haslem predictably winning a jump ball against Jeremy Lin.
But then, in one motion, Wade gathered the ball off the bounce in one hand and fired it about 70 feet to James. From a purely physical standpoint, it was an amazing toss. But the mental aspects of the play are more noteworthy.
James took off down the sideline at the very second the ball went up, dusting a casually jogging Omer Asik to the rim. Wade’s one-handed fling led him perfectly to the cup, where he laid it in. Both players clearly knew what they were going to do before the tip, and they executed their plan to perfection.
