In a key moment during the Sixers' 98-94 loss to the Miami Heat, Jrue Holiday found himself with the basketball and his team desperately needing a bucket.

The 6-foot-4 guard took it upon himself to break down the entire Heat defense before finishing with a right-handed slam over the 6-foot-8 LeBron "King" James to tie the game with 80 seconds remaining in the game. 

While this play was impressive, it wasn't enough to propel the Sixers to victory. So James and the Heat get the last laugh (their 20th victory in a row), but Sixers fans can enjoy the athleticism of their young All-Star. Now, about the rest of the roster…nevermind, that's a conversation for another day.
