NBA Roundup: LeBron marvels at own dunk, Cavs sign veteran Quinn

The SportsXchange

LeBron James took great pleasure in his highlight dunk Monday night over Boston's Jason Terry during the Miami Heat's win over the Celtics on Monday night.

The Heat forward felt like the slam that knocked Terry to the court provided a measure of revenge for some of the things that the former Mavericks player said in the past about James and the Heat, particularly when they dueled in the 2011 NBA Finals.

"I've had a chance to (review) it, and it was one of my better ones," James said. "The fact that it happened to J.T. made it that much sweeter. Because we all know J.T. and he talks too much sometimes. And I'm glad it happened to him."

Last week, asked about the Heat's winning streak, Terry said, "(I'm) not really impressed with it or anything that they do."

---The Cleveland Cavaliers signed guard Chris Quinn from Tulsa of the NBA Development League for the remainder of the season, the team announced Wednesday.

Quinn, 29, was expected to join the injury-plagued Cavs for Wednesday night's game against Miami in Cleveland. Among the Cavaliers injury losses is All-Star guard Kyrie Irving (shoulder).

In 25 games this season with Tulsa, Quinn averaged 12.7 points and 6.1 assists.

The former Notre Dame player has considerable prior NBA experience, having played 234 games from 2006 to 2011 with the Heat, New Jersey and San Antonio.
