CLEVELAND – LeBron James may have the signature play of Game 3. And it occurred just minutes after tipoff at Quicken Loans Arena.



James threw an alley-oop to himself off the backboard and threw down a thunderous dunk at the 9:36 mark of the first quarter to give the Cavaliers a 12-4 lead.

The jaw-dropping move left fans speechless inside The Q. But, it wasn’t the first time James did that in the NBA Finals.

James threw a pass off the backboard to himself and slammed it home during Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals in Cleveland.
