The Miami Heat are out to a more than great start tonight in their much anticipated showdown against the Oklahoma City Thunder, jumping out to a huge halftime lead.

Most of that has to do with the fact that LeBron James is being his usual, dominant self, although the entire night hasn’t been all fun and games for the NBA’s best star.

Late in the second quarter, James took a pass off a turnover and seemed as if he was headed for yet another one of his posterizing plays.

That was until he was caught up to by two Oklahoma City defenders which resulted in him eating some hardwood.

Again, it’s not all going to be easy.
