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.
