Video: Sixers' Jrue Holiday dunks over Heat's LeBron James

By Ben Golliver

Sixers guard Jrue Holiday turned in one pretty crunch time play against the Heat, even if it ultimately came in a losing effort.

With the Heat leading 91-89 and a little more than one minute remaining in regulation, Holiday split the defense on a high screen, avoiding a Dwyane Wade swiping attempt at a steal to get deep into the paint. Once there, he rose for a dunk, smoothly avoiding a block attempt by LeBron James, which came just a bit too late.

Philadelphia's All-Star guard finished with 21 points (on nine-for-18 shooting), seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 42 minutes. It proved not to be enough to overcome the Heat, who took home their 20th consecutive victory 98-94 at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.

James finished with a game-high 27 points (on eight-for-19 shooting), eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in the win.

Miami improved its league-best record to 49-14 with the win; Philadelphia dropped to 24-40.

Holiday, 22, was recently included in The Point Forward's top 10 point guard rankings.
