Video: Spurs' Kawhi Leonard throws down poster dunk on Heat's Mike Miller

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard dunked on Heat forward Mike Miller in transition during the first quarter of Game 6 of the 2013 Finals at American Airlines Arena in Miami on Tuesday night.

Tony Parker pushed the pace in a three-on-two break situation, shooting a crosscourt bounce pass to Leonard, who filled the lane on the left. Leonard gathered from outside the protected circle and, without dribbling, rose high to throw down a right-handed dunk over Miller. Replays showed that Leonard's highlight effort was aided by a bit of a clear-out with his off arm.

Leonard's slam gave San Antonio an 18-16 lead midway through the first quarter.

In his second season out of San Diego State, Leonard averaged 11.9 points and 6 rebounds per game this season.

Leonard's slam marked his second entry into the “Dunk of the Playoffs” conversation (the first one is here).  The rest of the conversation includes: Pacers forward Paul George, George againGrizzlies forward Quincy PondexterGrizzlies forward Tayshaun PrinceKnicks guard Iman ShumpertRockets forward Carlos DelfinoThunder forward Kevin DurantWarriors center Andrew BogutBulls forward Taj GibsonPacers forward Gerald GreenPacers center Roy Hibbert and Warriors forward Harrison Barnes.

San Antonio held a 3-2 series lead over Miami entering Game 6 of the Finals. If necessary, Game 7 will be held in Miami on Thursday night.
