Here's a video clip from LeBron's postgame interview last night:

"Haha, get outta here Craig."

And here is a look at the play in question:

Whether or not it was a block or a foul, my favorite part is the fact that trailing by just one point, LeBron and the Heat wasted the last four seconds of the game complaining about the call.

Now moving on to Craig Sager's question, is it possible Brooklyn really could cause trouble for Miami in the playoffs?  If the season ended today the two teams would be matched up in the second round (should they both get there).  As much as I don't want to, my gut instinct is to agree with LeBron.  Although laughing off the notion that the team that just beat you might beat you again is probably not a wise move.

Even though the Nets have won all four games vs Miami this year, amazingly three of them were by just one point, and the other was in double overtime.  But there is something to be said for the fact that Brooklyn managed pull them out on each and every occasion.

No LeBron team had ever been swept four games by another club in the regular season before, but there is a precedent for this: In the "big three" Heat era two other teams have swept the regular season series from Miami.  The first was the 2010-2011 Bulls (3-0), who later fell to the Heat 4-1 in the Eastern Conference Finals.  But, that same season the Mavericks won both contests from Miami during the season, then defeated them 4-2 in the NBA Finals.

My guess is the Nets are more likely to follow in Chicago's footsteps rather than Dallas', but you never know...
