Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

Sometimes, you're really good, then on top of that you get lucky, and then you hit a ridiculous shot.

As part of a 28-point night, LeBron James managed to score on an absurd, running baby hook off the glass during Miami's series-clinching 105-93 win over Indiana. James cooly glanced at the Pacers bench after hitting the shot, as if to say, "Yeah, when that goes down, there's no stopping me."

Of course, because we all love a dunks, James' circus shot managed only the No. 2 spot on the NBA's list of top plays. LeBron actually managed to top himself, awkwardly throwing down a dunk off a behind-the-back pass from Dwyane Wade to cap off a fast break.
