Expected to bring the energy for the Miami Heat, Birdman absolutely took flight in Game 5. The big man skied up for a massive block on his Indiana Pacers counterpart, Tyler Hansbrough.

The best part?

This play came immediately after Birdman was called for a flagrant-1 for lowering his shoulder and putting Hansbrough on the floor.

Unlike the rest of us, it looks like Birdman could leave the Red Bull at home.
