- LeBron James threw down a posterizing dunk on the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday en route to a 121-114 win for the Cavaliers.
- It’s just the latest in an utterly ridiculous month for James, who has had career highlights in passing, handles, and dunks over the past few weeks.
- The Cavaliers still hold the third seed in the Eastern Conference and would host the Washington Wizards in the first round of the playoffs if the season ended today.
LeBron James will not stop.
On Sunday, James added yet another ridiculous dunk to his highlight reel, extending in “Space Jam” fashion against the Brooklyn Nets.
The dunk happened in the closing seconds of the first quarter, with James driving through the Brooklyn defense and overpowering Joe Harris to slam the ball home. The viciousness of the move was so profound that even the opposing fans stood in appreciation.
You can watch the scene play out below.
It’s just the latest jaw-dropping highlight in what has been one of the most stunning months of James’ 15 years in the NBA. In March alone, James has pulled off an insane run of unbelievable passes, handles, and dunks other players would be happy to have had over the course of their entire career.
The Cavaliers would go on to win their game on Sunday 121-114 to keep their hold on third place in the Eastern Conference. If the season ended today, they’d face the Washington Wizards in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
