LeBron James has made hundreds of amazing plays in his NBA career, but that pass he threw to Mike Miller at the end of the first half of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals may be the best pass he’s ever thrown.
With time winding down, LeBron takes the ball in the backcourt and races to the frontcourt. As the clock ticks down to five seconds, LeBron goes left and blows past Sam Young, driving hard to the basket and looking to float one from about five feet. When he sees two guys jump at him, he redirects his body and reloads his right arm to make a pass. He somehow finds teammate Miller wide open in the corner. While in the air, James fires a perfect bullet pass to Miller, who knocks down a 3-pointer before the halftime buzzer sounds to cut the Pacers’ lead to 53-47.
Bulls guard Nate Robinson, who was a guest analyst on NBA TV, simply said: “That was a big-time pass, man. A big-time play by a big-time player. To jump on the opposite site, you’re going left then right pass and find the guy in the corner.”
