Video: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Connect on Game-Winning Oop

It may have been LeBron James’ birthday, but the King was in a giving mood, as he hooked up Dwyane Wade with a gorgeous alley-oop pass from out of bounds for the game winner against the Timberwolves. Great play.

    First good play drawn up by Spo in his existence.

    Great game, Wade, Bosh and Lebron are just amazing, the young pups from MN almost won it, Kevin Love was awesome again, Rubio 12-12-6 in 1/2 the game, he was incredible!

    It was actually LeBrons idea JT… Spo still yet to come up with something.

  • Jay cutler

    Why did Kevin love hound bosh outside the 3 pt line like wade was invisible? Dumb.

    Oooooooh, nice.
    Enjoyed them staying focused and still discussing the play while walking back to the huddle. Those 3 are on a mission, premature celebrations are passé.

  • Startown

    Great game, Lebron, wade, bosh vs love/Rubio and Williams, close game,,,they all played well

  • Red

    Nice Play.

  • Yesse

    Nice play. Timbs should have switched on screens or atleast on the last one.

    rubio had a good game, dont know about incredible, he did have 5 TO, and lost his man which ended up losing the game, but solid game for a rookie. Good to see the heat having to overcome adversity early on, it’ll keep them hungry and give the team confidence in close situations.

  • shutup

    oh and he played 32 minutes thats not half the game, lets keep it in perspective


    DAMN ! I missed all this coz of the flight. Didnt get my luggage , coz of the delay. Phuck it. Still on the way home from the airport , stuck in traffic , but i cant wait now till i peep this when i get in, roll a phat one & tare nbk a new one while im at it. :-) (just playin wee man) Glad to be back. Too much familly is bad for your health. :-) Happy New Year everyone, in case i forget laters. Seems like Rubio might have a turnover problem this year , but his dimes are tight as.

    if bron played 48min he scores 55

  • BBaller

    Hate to say it, but the only team that can beat the Heat is the Heat. Meaning injuries, no team has displayed any form apart from OKC that even threatens the Heat this season.A 66 season suits them best and unless Howard goes to L.A it’s in the bag for Miami.

  • BBaller

    Tolliver did lose this game but the wolves also couldn’t stop miami at all, wade, bosh and lebron all were just j’ing up the d in the 4th quarter.

    Struggling against the t-wolves….christ.

  • startown

    shutup: Not a Rubio fan are you, the guy is 21 and he puts up 12 points and 12 assists, 6 rebounds and yes 5 turnovers against the Miami Heat in 30 minutes. I would say that is a great line!

    If you watched the game, the whole atmosphere in the arena and on his team changes when he is in the game, his +/- is great in all three games.

    D Wade praised his play after the game on the local MN network station. You might have to buck up and face the fact that Rubio is going to be a great player in this league

    As for the 5 turnovers, 3 were legit turnovers and 2 were perfect passes that Tolliver and one other Wolf didn’t see coming.

  • robb

    The Wolves are a good young team and Adelman is a good coach, they have great pieces just give them some time. Ricky’s good, he risks too much with some of those passes but he’ll do great.

  • Mike from Spain

    @ shutup -> In the last play the one who loses Wade it is another T-wolves guy that gets caught in the pick. Rubio reacted a bit late, he should have got Wade as soon as he saw the pick, but well… I would have said Rubio is more at fault from not taking the game tieing shot, he passed the ball to a teammate in a worse position because he choked. Two bad plays at clutch time in an otherwise great game.

  • boss

    when teams play miami they come harder because there basicly the team to beat and are the favorites so miami basicly there games are going to be extra though

  • James Aka…

    This is the type of thing I would expect to see from them several times a game, and I think animated the championship predictions last year. Two guys that athletic, that capable of passing, should shred defenses given the chance.


    basicly true :-)

  • LA Huey

    Great design, pass, and finish. Also, a perfect example of the bad defense of Kevin Love. Too concerned with covering Bosh like he was Dirk to realize his teammate was being picked. Though Ricky was a little lazy in his pursuit.

  • shutup

    @star, its an ok statline, not great by any stretch. Rubio had a solid game, if any of the other rookies of this class put that up would you say it was “great”?

  • the truth

    wonder what wade and bron were arguing about after the play?
