LeBron James had a nice little chasedown block against Avery Bradley on Thursday night. The Cleveland Cavaliers Star then grabbed the ball, ran toward his own goal, and went up to show the Boston Celtics how it’s done.

That’s when Al Horford stepped in.

As James went up toward the rim, the Celtics big man met him down the lane line and responded with a huge swat of his own.

Via Twitter:

That’s an impressive series, especially considering you don’t normally think of LeBron as getting blocked at the rim like that very often.

LeBron would eventually come back to block Bradley again, so it was a roofing party all around.
