Video: Sixers' Evan Turner dunks over Heat's LeBron James

Sixers guard Evan Turner threw down a dunk in transition over the top of Heat forward LeBron James during Philadelphia's regular season opener on Wednesday.

With roughly 10:30 remaining in the first quarter, Turner found himself ahead of the play in transition, with only James standing between him and the hoop. Gathering himself just outside the restricted circle, Turner rose for a two-handed dunk over the top of James, who attempted to block the dunk with his right hand. The No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft soared just high enough to clear James' contesting effort and give Philadelphia a 6-0 lead.

Projected by many as the league's worst team, Philadelphia unexpectedly raced out to a 19-0 lead against the two-time defending champions.

Turner, 25, averaged a career-high 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists for the Sixers last season.
