No NBA playoff games on Monday night, and I know some of you are jonesing. Going through withdrawals. Getting the shakes.
We’ve got a fix.
Courtesy the fine folks at NBA.com we give you five monster dunks from the Bulls and Heat Game 1. Like we said going in, there were so many great athletes in this series that every game was going to feature some huge highlights. And while maybe we didn’t mention Taj Gibson, he is on that list.
Video: Taj Gibson was a highlight factory Sunday night
We already showed you how the Bulls Taj Gibson was not very welcoming to Chicago native Dwyane Wade Sunday night.
But tat was not all Gibson did.
He also had the most spectacular of the 19 offensive rebounds the Bulls grabbed in Game 1, a thunderous putback for two. Another case of the Heat defense scrambling, nobody bothering to put a body on a guy sliding to the basket as the shot went up, another case of nobody helping the helper.
And Gibson can get up.
Video: Taj Gibson returns the favor to Dwyane Wade
Taj Gibson returned the favor two him during the Bulls Game 1 beat down of the Heat Sunday night. It was a transition play where C.J. Watson is leading the break but leaves it back for Gibson. You see Wade turn but it’s too late for him to make a play.
