LeBron's dunk on Jason Terry, game-winning shot highlight comeback

I can't decide which play was better, LeBron's alley-oop on Jason Terry or his game-winning shot to cap a 17-point comeback.

I'm going with the dunk, despite the stone-cold nature of the game-winner. Hey, give Terry credit for hanging in there. Of course, Terry was feeling pretty guilty after just giving up a turnover at midcourt. Wade stole the ball from Terry and found Norris Cole, who lobbed the ball to James.

LeBron received a technical foul after the play. What officials mistook for taunting was actually LeBron checking for signs of life after nearly sending the Jet to that big airplane hanger in the sky.

James finished the game with 37 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds. He now has 33 triple-doubles, which is a career high for a single season.

The Heat clinched its division with the victory and a loss by the Hawks. The 23-game winning streak now moves to the Cleveland. The 17-point comeback was the Heat's largest of the season. The Heat trailed by 13 points with eight minutes left in the game.

The Heat lost 10 consecutive regular-season games in Boston before Monday's victory.
