The Miami Heat delivered the boom on the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1 Wednesday. The Nets seemed to be caught off guard by Miami's execution, and the Heat's speed, strength, quickness, and power made everything that much harder to counter.

Of course, when you're dealing with LeBron James, everything feels like that anyway. Check out the boom he lowered on Andray Blatche.

That was some boom.

After the play, James was pretty pumped.

Bonus: Watch how fast he slips this screen, how long it takes for Pierce to realize it... and then the pass. Oh, the pass.
