Brooklyn rookie Mason Plumlee came up with arguably the biggest play of his first NBA season when he stuffed LeBron James' dunk attempt to lead the Nets over the Miami Heat, 88-87, on Tuesday night.

Plumlee rotated to come out of nowhere, stopping what would have been a dramatic game-winner for James.

The rookie center finished with eight points, eight rebounds and three blocks in the win. With the victory, the Nets finished off a four-game sweep of Miami in the season series.

Update: Tuesday, April 8, 11:30 p.m. ET

It looks like Plumlee and James disagree on whether the final play should have been called a foul or not.
