LeBron James Hurts Right Hand Blocking Hibbert, Follows Up with Lefty Dunk

It was a hard-fought game between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat with plenty of bodies hitting the floor throughout. Who would have thought that the most interesting psuedo-injury would be LeBron James jamming a few fingers on his right hand.

With the Pacers doing everything possible to grab two points midway through the third quarter, LeBron and Chris Bosh blocked a pair of shots to keep them from doing just that.

Roy Hibbert would eventually score, and LeBron would walk away from the play in pain—a double-whammy.

As Miami's ensuing offensive possession fell into shambles, the Indiana defense seemingly forgot about LeBron standing on the weak side of the floor, grimacing his hand all the while.

Once the defense opened up enough, LeBron simply sprinted to the rim, grabbed the pass from Udonis Haslem and threw down an powerful dunk with the left hand rather than the aching right.

That's why we've got two of 'em.

In a solid game throughout, LeBron's dunk was part of a long back-and-forth between the two teams on their way to an overtime thriller.

Hopefully every game between these two teams is as exciting as Game 1.
