With a chance to blow the roof off Quicken Loans Arena, LeBron James absolutely whiffed on a wide-open transition dunk that doinked off the back of the rim in the third quarter. It would have given the Cavaliers a one-point lead over the Celtics in Game 4.
James had a sub-par game by his own standards in Game 3, scoring just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting. In Game 4 on Tuesday, however, he came out more aggressive, attacking the rim and launching from deep in an attempt to avenge his lackluster performance -- a move that ultimately cost him by.
His opportunity to make a statement after missing the final 6-plus minutes of the first half ultimately made him the butt of Twitter, who was ruthless afterward.
How many times did Michael Jordan blow a dunk like LeBron James just did? Lol. Chill out guys. I'm just playing around.— John Herrick (@johnherrick10) May 24, 2017
