LeBron James Doing The Spectacular, Mavericks Hanging Tough

LeBron James is doing some of the superhuman things that only LeBron James can do, hitting some spectacular jump shots and throwing down dunks with authority. One standout shot came right at the beginning of the quarter, hitting an unbelievable fade-away jump shot over Shawn Marion as time expired on the shot clock.

After three minutes in the second quarter, James has come out for a rest, and Marion has come out at the same time. It appears that Rick Carlisle is going to rotate his defensive players to match the playing time of the Big Three, and it's probably a good strategy.

Despite the great offensive play of James and Dwyane Wade, the Mavericks are more than matching them right now, as they lead by a score of 39-34 with three minutes gone in the second quarter. It's been a team effort, with no one player standing out as 'the guy' on the offensive end.
