Tuesday night, unlikely hero and Nets rookie center Mason Plumlee made the play of the game, stuffing LeBron James at the rim on a dunk attempt that would have put the Heat up by one and preserving an 88-87 victory and Nets season sweep.

Putting aside the conspiracy theorists that would call a foul here -- Plumlee gets the ball first, not James's hand, and even in that instance, the hand is part of the ball, and it's not a call any referee's going to make at that stage of the game -- let's just have some fun and look at two nice angles of Plumlee's block.

Here's a look at Plumlee's block on James from the regular broadcast feed:

The win makes the Brooklyn Nets the first team in the history of the "Big 3" Era to sweep the Heat in a four-game series.
