Mason Plumlee(*) actually blocked LeBron James would-be game-winning dunk attempt in the last seconds of Tuesday night’s Nets 88-87 win over the Heat in Miami. File this under sentences you don’t read every day — if ever. Amazingly, given LeBron’s super-duper-star-status, the refs didn’t call a foul on the rookie from Duke even though there appeared to be (some) contact on the play.
The Nets finished the regular season 4-0 vs. the Heat. It sets up for some intrigue should the teams meet down the road in the playoffs.
(*) “Plums” because it was jersey nickname night. Be sure to buy yours soon!
