Kevin Love found LeBron James for a full-court touchdown pass plenty of times this season.
On Tuesday night, during Game 2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers-Boston Celtics first-round playoff series, King James met Love halfway. Dribbling the ball up the hardwood, James stopped at halfcourt and threw a picture-perfect alley-oop to a cutting Love, who finished the electric play with a reverse dunk.
The incredible highlight was part of a decisive 99-91 Cavs win, giving the team a 2-0 series advantage. James scored 15 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, adding nine rebounds and seven assists. Kyrie Irving chipped in with 26 points.
In other playoff action Tuesday night, Dwight Howard and Josh Smith connected for six alley-oops of their own. Howard finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds and James Harden added 14 points to lead the Houston Rockets to a 111-99 win over the Dallas Mavericks for a 2-0 series lead. Smith had 15 points, nine assists and eight rebounds off the bench.
John Wall took the Toronto Wizards apart with 26 points and 17 assists, leading the Washington Wizards to a 117-106 win and 2-0 series edge.
