We’ve seen this play out a few times this postseason. Someone on the team the Cleveland Cavaliers are going up against misses a jumper. The second this happens and LeBron James sees Kevin Love is in position to grab the rebound, he breaks to the opposite rim. Love grabs the board, looks up, sees LeBron is behind the defense, and drops a full-court dime into King James. LeBron then gets a wide open dunk in transition and either ignites the crowd in Cleveland or silences the fans on the road.
It looked like we were going to get this again during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Cleveland and Boston. Love did his part – he was hounded by Al Horford threw maybe his most impressive outlet pass of the postseason to LeBron. Shockingly, the best basketball player on earth didn’t follow up on his end of the bargain. Instead, this happened.
