The Cleveland Cavaliers have taken the lead back from the Boston Celtics, but LeBron James is going to want this one back.

James, who was mired with foul trouble in the first half, has had a nice third quarter, scoring nine points in the frame and avoiding getting to his fifth foul. Unfortunately for the league's best player, the play most are talking about is this awful blown dunk.

Kevin Love corralled a Celtics miss, and tossed an unreal off-balance outlet pass to James, right on the money. James, who had two Celtics trailing and ready to concede the two points, clanged his signature tomahawk slam off the rim.

After a ten-point halftime deficit, the Cavaliers are now up one late in the third quarter, but people love to get on LeBron, and they are not missing the opportunity.

And, of course, you're obligatory Skip Bayless take. We're very sorry.

If the Cavaliers hold on for the win, people won't remember this one for long. If the Celtics pull this one out by a basket, however...
