"An Exclamation Point On the Game"
"I just wanted to be aggressive. I hadnít had a play like that in the series. I just turned the corner and saw (James) Posey. I gave him the in-and-out. He went for the fake ... Once I turn the corner and get my one-two down, thereís not too many guys that can get up there and jump with me," said LeBron on Cavs.com. "There was a lot built up: missing shots that I normally make, turning the ball over. I took it upon myself to continue to shoot. I made a big three when I had missed a few. I got to the lane, made a few layups. [The dunk] just capped it off for me to get up there and put an exclamation point on the game ... That was the play we needed as a team."
And it was just not what the Celtics needed.
"He can dunk," said Doc Rivers. "Especially if you give him a running start at the basket. Itís probably going to be a pretty good dunk, and heís so darn powerful that once he gets up there, thereís not a lot you can do. I hate the fact that he got to the basket."
Graham Will Be Back
On Pacers.com, hard-working forward Stephen Graham's option has been picked up by the club.
Chuck Checks In
On Bulls.com, radio play-by-play man Chuck Swirsky says Chicago has plenty of coaching options.
