At this point, the Miami Heat are just toying with the Dallas Mavericks. After opening up a 21-point lead at halftime, the Heat have extended that advantage to 35 points early in the third quarter. The best play in a series of highlight maneuvers: this tip alley-oop executed by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Yup, that's James purposely tipping the ball to Wade. Mario Chalmers' pass was a little high, but James probably could have brought it down and slammed it himself. Instead, he saw Wade flashing to the middle, out-jumped Shawn Marion (who can get up himself) and tipped the ball to Wade for the two-handed dunk.
