There's nothing that LeBron James hasn't done is basketball yet he continues to leave everyone stunned with moments that take the breath away.
Like LeBron James, Larry Nance Jr. was once "just a kid from Akron".
The Cavs missed just one free throw in their 27 attempts.
"I now fully understand why whispers about the Philadelphia 76ers and their growing behind-the-scenes confidence that they can woo LeBron to Philly this summer are getting louder". DOMINANT. He has put the Cavaliers on his back yet again.
James got a rare decent rest to start the second quarter, sitting the first 4:15 as Cleveland outscored IN by four points, but the Pacers dominated the rest of the quarter.
Then, after a timeout, James followed that block up with a game-winning jump shot while scrambling to his left. With AP Photos.The Indiana Pacers felt like they got cheated in the final seconds of Game 5. However, there is at least one member of the Pacers team that felt the win was undeserved and he had a strong message for LeBron after the game. The Cavs surrendered a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter as it was.
"I went back to the Miami days when I was shooting the ball extremely well at one point throughout the playoffs".
But that wasn't the reason James' teammates doused him with water in celebration on the floor. Kevin Love can't shoot in this series. The Cavaliers' J.R. Smith has been one of the keys in helping to neutralize the All-Star.
Think about that. Eleven consecutive times James' team has finished off its opponent at first chance.
The next play added a page in James' storied career. The Cavs were miserable down the stretch, missing seven straight shots and turning it over twice in the nine possessions before James' clutch make.
"I just try to read the game", James said.
LeBron James helped Cleveland snatch victory from the Pacers on Wednesday, while adding yet another chapter of greatness to his resume.
James is already averaging 42.7 minutes and 34.8 points in this series. And on top of everything else, the Cavs face an uphill battle to make the Finals again from the #4 seed in the Eastern Conference. While the block was impressive, most experts concluded that it was goaltending. It really sucks."The Pacers didn't beg for the call immediately after the play". As an athlete and as a public figure, James breaks the mold. And, he couldn't quite find his stroke from deep after the game-winner: 7-28 (25 percent).
It's entirely possible the Cavaliers may still fall short against the Pacers and bow out of the playoffs early.
