WATCH: LeBron James pulls off insane pass to himself off the backboard for dunk

By Jesse Reed

It’s all Cleveland Cavaliers so far at the start of Game 3 at home against the Golden State Warriors, and LeBron James has a lot to do with that.

Early in the first quarter, on a play that looked like he was going to blow, James pulled off an incredible play in which he passed to himself off the backboard for a slam dunk.

Here’s a bit more on how James ended up in that position to begin with. He turned something ugly into something beautiful in about two seconds.

And in case you were wondering, that was a completely legal play.

In just over four minutes, the Cavaliers have a 14-4 lead over the Warriors, and James has two points, two rebounds and two assists.
