LeBron answered a lot of questions about himself Thursday night. He scored 45 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and dished out five assists in the Miami Heat’s 98-79 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
James was on fire from the start and the Heat led by 13 at the half. Part of that all-out assault was a a huge put-back dunk off a shot by Chris Bosh with less than a minute to go in the third quarter.

Mickael Pietrus completely neglected to block James out on this play, which is never a good idea. James timed his jump perfectly and flushed this while the Celtics just stood around watching.
James and the Heat staved off elimination and now get to host Game 7 on Saturday night at American Airlines Arena. The winner of that game will advance to the NBA Finals to face the Oklahoma City Thunder.
