alice's revisions, as always, are great but I have to touch it up just a bit:
Wang Shipeng even passed the ball unexpectedly to Dwyane Wade twice, and the “Flash” made full use of this largesse; his slam dunk and a three-point shoot enlarged the gap to 30 points in moments.
"even twice" would not be used at the end of a sentence like that, and, as far as  I know, there is no such expression as "blinking moments."

Actually, "largesse" is a rather fancy word for a sports article but I'm pressed to come up with a suitable synonym.

JEFF,

Acutally, "largesse" occured to me at first thought. I corrected it to "largess", which I read in W.B.White's Here is New York.

You are always the one to put a seal on my comments.
