LeBron James rejected at rim in Nets-Heat climax

Published Add your comment

Miami Heat star forward LeBron James was denied a game-winning dunk in dramatic fashion last night against the Brooklyn Nets as his side went down to defeat. 

The Nets won the game 88-87, but with only two seconds remaining, James collected a pass from Rashard Lewis inside the paint and went about attacking the basket.

However, he was denied the successful dunk by the dominate defense play of Nets' player Mason Plumlee.

The big man, who was wearing his nickname 'PLUMS' jersey, disrupted LeBron by connecting with his hand, meaning that James was blocked from making the shot.

The referees didn't call the foul and adjudged that the play was fair game.

Post-game, LeBron was caught on camera watching the replay, and you can tell he wasn't happy with the call.

With the four-time league MVP believing his was unfairly impeded. 

Whatever the differing views and opinions, the Nets remain the only team in the NBA to be unbeaten this season against the two-time reigning league champions.
