Milwaukee Bucks' Dunleavy looks in as Miami Heat's James drives around Bucks' Moute in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

LeBron passes off backboard to himself for dunk (VIDEO)


LeBron James got the ball on this fast break and was thinking pass — but Monta Ellis plays it well and steps in to take the pass away. Of course, that means LeBron is going to take the shot.

The Heat went on to win 94-83 in a game without Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh on the court.

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game.

Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
