Heat dunk all over the Raptors (GIFs)


The Heat are a dangerous team in transition. With the combination of speed, athleticism, and size of their wing players, they can give us highlights night after night. On Friday night in Toronto, the Heat were doing just that:

It started in warmups, when LeBron James showed us some amazing dunking skills with this one:

If LeBron James is Calvin Johnson, than Dwyane Wade is his Matthew Stafford. We have seen these two connect on long passes before, and on this one, Wade hits James with a full court pass, and finishes with the sick jam:

Once again we see the power of the Heat in transition, as Bosh hits James, who hits Chalmers who throws a lob to James for the dunk. How do you stop that?

And last but not least, James is on the passing end of a dunk, as he hits Mario Chalmers, and he hits Wade for the slam:

The Heat look to run after every shot–made or missed–so you better be committed to transition defense, or it’s going to be a long night for you as a team. LeBron James finished with 27 points in a 90-83 win over the Raptors on Friday night.
