An incredible Game 3 dunk from LeBron James was captured in an even better photograph.​

Jesse D. Garrabrant captured the photo for Getty Images, featuring some dramatic lighting and faces full of awe all around the court.

As the Cavaliers continued routing the Warriors at home in Cleveland, Kyrie Irving tossed a lob toward the back of the rim that James elevated, caught with one hand, cocked back and finished with emphasis. It was perhaps the lasting image of a triumphant 120–90 win for the Cavs, who now trail 2–1 entering Friday’s Game 4.
