Monta Ellis knows better than to try and get between LeBron James and the rim on a fast break.
Despite the score being tied at 98-98 in the fourth quarter, Ellis saw the freight train coming towards him and internally screamed ‘nah, not today’ and got right out the way as LeBron threw down this powerhouse jam to give the Cavs the lead.

The dunk was the exclamation mark on the Cavs’ remarkable comeback to take Game 3, matching the largest comeback in NBA playoff history.
Down as much as 26 points, Cleveland roared back to defeat the Pacers 119-114 behind LeBron’s 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.
More impressively, they Cavs did it with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love glued to the bench in the fourth.
