With a third straight trip to the NBA Finals on the line the Miami Heat came up big in Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers running away with it after the first period en route to a 99-76 win. What better way to celebrate and enjoy the win than to review it in GIFs?
Of course what better way to start then with the slam that started LeBron James off for the night?
When LeBron is in the zone like he was you know we are going to see more than one highlight reel style slam.
It wasn't all about dunks for LeBron though. We had us a pretty nice strategic flop too.
Flopping seems to be a thing this post season. Paul George for one is tired of it.
Key to victory was the emergence of Dwyane Wade from his post season cocoon.
Pat Riley was certainly happy about it.
Back from suspension, the Birdman got into the act in the second period.
This guy was real happy about it.
By time the second half started the game was really under control by the Heat; so much so that someone bothered to make a GIF of this guy (whoever the heck he is) drinking water.
It sure made Chris Bosh pretty excited.
Got Shaq so excited the big man fell down.
And Sad Spiderman is once again sad.
BEST OF MAXIM

Thanks to former Redskins QB Joe Theismann, the Internet just about blew up with the notion that reigning league MVP LeBron James could potentially play the same position one day. With as big of a freak athlete Bron Bron is, it got us thinking, “Could he actually be successful at it?” Though there’s about a [...]
Following Saturday's game 6 loss to the Pacers, when discussing his technical foul for running the complete length of the court after being called for a rare foul, LeBron James said this to the media:
“I had to run down the court to stop from being kicked out,” James said. “I thought it was a pretty bad call. I don’t complain about calls too much. I thought me and Hibbert...
I think LeBron was trying to give the perfect motivational quote and it came out wrong.
“I have something in me that they took in ’07; beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor,” James said. “I won’t forget that. You shouldn’t as a competitor. You should never forget that.
“If you go into my pick-and-roll now, I’m going to shoot. And I’m confident...
Roy Hibbert has been handed a $75K fine for his comments during the post-game press conference Saturday night following Game 6. The world expected it to happen the second the curse word and gay slur slipped out, and sure enough it happened.
What the world probably did not expect was for some enterprising individual to discover a video clip on YouTube of LeBron James making the...
LeBron James busted out his go-go gadget legs in following up on a Dwayne Wade miss for a thunderous put-back dunk during the first quarter of Game 7 between his Heat and the Indiana Pacers.
There has been plenty of talk about the Miami Heat and the Big Three going into Game 7 tonight. LeBron James appeared bound and determined to have not just a good night, but a dominant one with this slam for his first basket of the night.
Of course time will tell if his night will be a dominant one...

Hey, maybe Shane Battier didn’t contribute the way some would have liked during the seven-game series between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat that came to a definitive end Monday night with Miami headed to the NBA Finals. After all, Shane Battier averaged 2.3 points on 12.5 percent shooting (.3 FGM on 2.7 attempts), 13.3 [...]The post Shane Battier Randomly Drying Off LeBron...
After butting heads throughout the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron James gave Lance Stephenson some words of encouragement following the Heat’s Game 7 win over the Pacers Monday night.
According to the Indy Star:
“He said I played hard this season and he’s happy with my progress,” Stephenson said. “He said I helped changed the Pacers organization, made us stronger and...
MIAMI (AP) -- No more sitting out stars, and for the San Antonio Spurs, no more sitting around.
Finally, the NBA Finals matchup is set, and the Miami Heat will either win a second straight championship or the Spurs will go a perfect 5 for 5 in the title round while denying LeBron James a ring for the second time.
The Heat earned their third consecutive Eastern Conference title...

For the first time since LeBron James left, the Cavaliers won something. While it may have been a winning ticket to the worst lottery in years, it was enough for the Gilbert family to celebrate raucously (and somewhat embarrassingly). What should Cleveland do with the pick? I covered the Cavaliers for RotoWire this past season, so I have a pretty...
It was 2007. Tim Duncan's Spurs had just swept LeBron James' Cavs away to win his fourth title. In the hallway afterwards, the two shared a moment.
Ever since the Heat came together on a stage in July 2010 with the pyrotechnics and bravado of a team that was pre-ordained to do great things, intense scrutiny has focused upon them. Every mistake, hiccup, shoulder bump, missed shot, injury, misspoken word, tweet, gesture and breath has been dissected and examined to an unreal and unfathomable level.
The Pacers seemed to expose...
MIAMI (AP) -- Their season, their legacy, their reign atop the NBA was all at stake, and the Miami Heat responded to all of that in a manner befitting champions.
With a blowout.
It's onto the NBA Finals for the Heat after they put away the Indiana Pacers, who saw their hopes of a storybook upset simply fall apart in a hurry.
LeBron James scored 32 points and grabbed eight...
