LeBron James highlighted the Heat's hot start in the first quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals with an emphatic swat of Spurs guard Patty Mills. James chased down Mills on the break, exploded across the lane and knocked the ball out of play with his left hand.
James finished the first quarter with 16 points (5-of-7 shooting) and six rebounds to help Miami take a 29-22 lead on the Spurs.
