Bulls forward Taj Gibson had a highlight-reel dunk early in the second quarter when he threw down a vicious two-hander over the Heat’s Dwyane Wade in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Gibson was fouled and completed a three-point play.

How impressive was it?

Even Wade clapped about six times when he saw the replay. “That was a good one,” Wade said. “I really got punked. It was good. It was a very athletic play. I knew I didn’t have a chance. I was backpedaling when I saw him take off. He’s very athletic.”
