Josh Richardson played 33 critical minutes off the bench to help the Miami Heat force a Game 7 with an impressive 103-91 victory against the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. But it wasn't just the nine points on 4/9 shooting, he also provided the highlight of the night with this crazy dunk down the lane in the second quarter to posterize Bismack Biyombo.

There's nothing like a rousing dunk to get the home crowd cheering, but J-Rich also provided this perfect block on Kyle Lowry in crunch time to help preserve the Heat lead.
