LeBron swats shot deep into the stands during Cavaliers’ blowout win over Hawks (VIDEO)

The Cavaliers wasted no time in beginning their destruction of the Hawks on Saturday, setting an NBA record by going 9-of-9 from three-point distance in a 41-point first quarter performance.

Cleveland led by as many as 43 points before settling for a 127-94 victory over a Hawks team that had just dropped the Heat convincingly, and was riding a four-game winning streak.

There were plenty of offensive highlights on the Cavaliers side, but this defensive gem from LeBron James -- where he rejected a shot from Kent Bazemore so deep into the stands that he felt the need to keep watching it fly -- seemed to be the most appropriate to share.
