LeBron James Caught This Alley-Oop From Norris Cole to Punctuate Another Incredible Performance by the MVP--The Big Lead
James, Dwyane Wade lead Miami Heat past Los Angeles Lakers--Miami Herald
Just witnessing LeBron James' breakaway alley-oop from Norris Cole firsthand was worth being in the building.
Whatever, indeed. A diehard sports fan, Wayne missed arguably the Heat's best highlight of the season, an over- and behind-the-head alley-oop from Cole to James to give the Heat (34-14) a seven-point lead with six minutes to play.

"It was an unbelievable play by D-Wade that started it," James said. "He got the steal and saved it to (Chris Bosh). (Bosh) threaded the needle to Cole and Cole just looked out his review and seen me trailing.

"I told him to throw it anywhere and I'll go get it."

James certainly did just that, leaping high into the air for a one-handed tomahawk dunk.

"Norris just threw it to the moon," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

"And I brought it down," James later added.

When it wasn't James or Wade or Bosh, it was Shane Battier loading up with three 3-pointers, Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole outplaying Nash tag-team style at point guard, and Udonis Haslem and Chris Andersen making rebounding the Lakers' problem, with the Heat closing with a 38-29 advantage.
