LeBron's Block On Iggy -- Picture

Interesting to note, earlier in the game, Iguodala had a layup where he attempted a reverse layup and was fouled. James obviously subconsciously recalled that event, because as he rises up (per ESPN Sports Science, 35.5 inches at 20 mph, contacting the ball at 11.5 feet) he places his left hand in a position to attempt a block if Iguodala attempted the reverse. Unsung defensive hero per Sports Science - JR Smith, whose flail at Iggy cost Iggy 0.15 seconds, allowing LeBron enough time to get into position, where he had a window of 0.20 seconds from release to backboard to legally block the shot.
