LeBron James rejected Tiago Splitter on one of the most incredible blocks you’ll ever see in Game 2 last night.
The play sealed the blowout for the Heat, and made everyone forget the relatively dismal offensive game LeBron was having to that point.

It was a beautiful play, and there are some awesome photographs of it.
