The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers were engaged in a close battle in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
But on social media, much of the chatter was about LeBron James’ first-quarter dunk.
The Cavs came out shooting early in the game, quickly making seven of their first 13 shots. But one of the misses was on purpose.
James threw a pass to himself off the backboard for a slam dunk as Cleveland raced to a 16-4 early lead.
The 12-point margin represented the biggest lead of the series for the Cavaliers at the time.
Cleveland is lost to Golden State as they took a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-seven series!
