James Johnson dunk

James Johnson hates rims, and Marcus Morris was silly enough to get in the way of the Miami forward’s attack during Tuesday’s game between the Heat and the Pistons. And as Johnson drove his knee straight into Morris’ chest, he also drew a blocking foul.

This dunk was so vicious, I’m sure Markieff Morris felt the pain all the way over in Los Angeles thanks to weird twin telepathy or something.

Posterization complete.

Johnson missed the free throw, though. Scrub.

Johnson also missed a game-winning attempt in the closing seconds, but the Heat kept the ball alive on the glass and Hassan Whiteside eventually tipped it in right at the buzzer.

So the Heat are now one game ahead of the Bulls for the No. 8 seed in the East. Meanwhile, the Pistons have lost five straight and eight of their last nine games to fall 2.5 games out of the playoffs.
