NBA Playoffs 2014: Mason Plumlee destroys Miami defense for big bucket (GIF)


The Brooklyn Nets need to be in tip-top form if they want to beat the Miami Heat in this series they’re in and so far they’ve looked alright. Obviously, they’re at a detriment because of their seven game series with the Toronto Raptors, but for an aged team that just came off a long and draining series, the Nets have showed pop at times in Game 1 against Miami.

One players who has showed spunk is Mason Plumlee who has been big for Brooklyn this postseason and all season long. Not only did Plumlee get a bucket against the Heat but he went over the Miami defense in the process.

Brooklyn will need more than that but so far they’re showing a spark we didn’t think they’d have.
