Found October 31, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams had an incredible start to his NBA career in Wednesday night's surprising 114-110 win over the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Carter-Williams set the tone right off the bat with a monster two-handed slam dunk just 23 seconds into the game. Carter-Williams had 22 points and 12 assists, and came close to a quadruple-double by adding 7 rebounds and 9 steals. The final steal by Carter-Williams came with just under a minute left as he took the ball from none other than LeBron James. Needless to say, not a bad first impression for a rookie. Video via NBA.
