SPEAKING
``He can dunk. Especially if you give him a running start at the basket. It's probably going to be a pretty good dunk and he's so darn powerful that once he gets up there, there's not a lot you can do. - Celtics coach Doc Rivers on LeBron James after Boston fell to the Cavaliers 88-77 on Monday night. James delivered a devastating dunk over a defenseless Kevin Garnett in the final two minutes.
