Video: Heat's LeBron James skies for one-handed alley-oop dunk vs. Pelicans

LeBron James skied high to catch an alley-oop pass from Dwyane Wade before finishing the play with a one-handed dunk during Miami's 107-88 home victory over New Orleans on Tuesday.

With New Orleans leading 54-48 and a little more than nine minutes remaining in the third quarter, Wade came off a high screen and spied James cutting baseline from the left corner behind Al-Farouq Aminu. The alley-oop pass had some loft on it, and James had to reach well above the rim to pull it down with his right hand before plowing the ball through the rim in one motion.

James finished with a game-high 32 points (on 13-for-22 shooting), five assists, three rebounds and two steals. Wade added 22 points (on 9-for-15 shooting), eight rebounds and eight assists in the win.

Anthony Davis finished with a team-high 22 points (on 10-for-18 shooting), 12 rebounds, three steals and two blocks for the Pelicans. Eric Gordon added 15 points (on 6-for-13 shooting) and three assists in a losing effort.

Miami improved to 27-8 with the win. New Orleans dropped to 15-18 with the loss.
