After serving up a beautiful alley-oop pass in the first half to Tristian Thompson, Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith tossed another one in the second half, to LeBron James.

On a fastbreak, Smith threw a no-look lob up for a powerful James slam, to give the Cavs a 76–57 lead. The two have combined to put together several mesmerizing highlights on the evening.

The slam gave James 20 points on the night, and Smith three assists. 


After a quiet first four games from James’s supporting cast, they have shown up in a big way during Games 5 and 6.
