LeBron James works hard, puts it back at the rim (GIF)


With the Miami Heat trying to outlast the Brooklyn Nets at home in game one of their series, LeBron James is doing everything he can to help his squad hold home court.

This highlight is a departure from the typical LeBron highlight only insofar as it does not involve something you would see on the top 10 plays. That said, the importance of this finish and the work it took to get the put-back is just as important to Miami’s chances in this game.

Whether the Nets “own” the Heat or not, it is hard not to say that this series will be decided by James and his ability to take over the game. More specifically, it might come down to LeBron’s ability to dominate multiple facets of the game.
