The Miami Heat overcame the Charlotte Bobcats in Game Two of their NBA playoff series last night, with LeBron James pivotal once again in their 101-97 win.
With the Heat star scoring a game-high 32 it was another virtuoso performance from the reigning MVP it seemed at times that the Bobcats could do nothing to stop James.
But Josh McRoberts came up with one method deep in the fourth quarter.
As the video shows, with just over one minute remaining in the contest and LeBron making a move to the rim, McRoberts' forearm connected with devastating effect to James' throat just as the Heat man was rising to make a shot.
Unsurprisingly the powerful move sent James to the floor where he remained for several seconds, clearly in some discomfort.
McRoberts meanwhile escaped with a common foul, although it is possible that the powers that be could come down on the 27-year old and deem the incident a flagrant foul after review.
With the LeBron given the all-clear to continue, the Heat were able to move to 2-0 in the series to date, with Game Three set for Saturday in Charlotte.
