LeBron James' Dunk On Ian Mahinmi In Game 3 Of NBA Finals (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

When LeBron James has an easy lane to the basket, it's usually a good idea to just get out of the way. Dallas' Ian Mahinmi learned that lesson on Sunday night in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

In the final minute of the first quarter, the Heat phenom drove right past Mavericks forward Shawn Marion and attacked the hoop. Mahinmi was caught in a bad position under the basket, but he still attempted to block James' dunk.

The Mavs reserve center was unsuccessful. James threw down an incredible one-handed dunk to give the Heat a 24-22 lead.

The two-time MVP finished with 17 points, while Dwyane Wade lead the team with 29 as Miami grabbed a 2-1 series lead. Scroll down to watch the highlight.
