Not that the Heat needed it, but LeBron James drilled a three from halfcourt last night, placing him atop the NBA's Top 5 plays.

James' buzzer-beating trey at the end of the third quarter put the Heat up 32 on New Jersey. Miami went on to win 108-78, improving to 29-9 on the season.

James finished with 21 points to lead Miami. Chris Bosh, in his first game back after missing some time due to a family matter, scored 20.

Other top plays from Tuesday included dunks by Josh Smith and Jason Maxiell, Kobe Bryant's overtime-forcing jumper, and a spinning, no-look layup by Dwyane Wade.
