Jrue Holiday dunks on LeBron James. Sort of. (VIDEO)

This was a key play for Philadelphia on Monday — it tied the Sixers and the Heat with less than 90 seconds in the game. (The rest of the game didn’t go the Sixers way.)

It all starts because Holiday is aggressive coming off the pick, while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh do about the worst defensive trap imaginable. Holiday splits the and is off to the race on a straight-line path — there is nobody between him and the rim.

It’s LeBron James’ job to rotate into position and stop this, but he is late with the recognition and by the time he makes his move all that can happen is he gets dunked on. Which Holiday is happy to do. It’s not a classic dunked-on, but it’s not bad.
