We’re going to recap the best plays of the week in case you weren’t able to see them for yourself.
It seems that yesterday was a triumphant day of plays in basketball. In the Bulls vs Heat game, at a little under 3 and a half minutes in the third quarter, Dwayne Wade passes the ball while running down the court to Lebron, who dunks the ball with ease solely with his right hand.
Joe Johnson scored victoriously for the Nets with less than a second remaining in double overtime, leading to victory for the Nets against the Wizards. In the final seconds of the game, Brooklyn and Washington were tied at 113, Johnson pulls up for the jumper and makes it in, leading to another Brooklyn win.
Taking it to the west coast where both Los Angeles teams were playing against each other in a fight against who reigns the top this season for the city, Kobe makes our list for one of the best plays this week. Although the Lakers took a tough loss against the Clippers, in the first quarter of the game, Kobe blocks a pass from Chris Paul to Lamar Odom, takes the ball all the way downtown, scoring in a heroic slam dunk for the Lakers.
During the Knicks vs Spurs game at the Garden Thursday, January 3rd, in which the Knicks snapped the Spurs’ seven game winning streak, with a little more than five minutes left in the fourth quarter, JR Smith scores an astonishing slam dunk, leading to an 18-point lead for the Knicks.

Drew Brees broke another record this season with 396 pass yards, and four touchdowns in the New Orleans loss to Carolina.
