Shot, save: LeBron bails out Cavaliers with Game 5 buzzer-beater

Cleveland were staring at the prospect of trailing 2-3 to IN but James had other ideas, his clutch play lifting the Cavaliers to a 98-95 win on Wednesday. He put together an awesome season in Cleveland, averaging 27.5 points per game to go along with 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists. The Pacers were upset about the call that went Cleveland's way on the play right before James' winner, but people are saying the uncalled goaltend on Victor Oladipo's shot ultimately doesn't matter.

"James said that following his last game against Wade he told him, "'If it's like our last time going against each other, then it's been everything and more".

Down by seven points heading into the second half of Game 5, the Cavaliers converted Indiana's seven turnovers into nine points, which led to them having a 32-17 edge in third-quarter scoring. James could not shoot 2-for-15 (OK, 3-for-15) from the field as Oladipo did and still have his team survive.

Game 6 is on Friday, April 26th, at 8 pm.

The result gave the Cavaliers a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven, first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.

Don't get us wrong: There are plenty of things about which you can fret as a Cavs fan. An incredibly efficient three point shooter, who consistently keeps doing what he is so good at, and who has most definitely stepped up when his team have so badly required him, when others around him haven't been able to play to their fullest potential.

The road to the National Basketball Association championship in the Eastern Conference seems to be more highly contested this year than last, however one should expect to see the same teams in the finals as in the last three years: the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors. This is a given when you play with the greatness that is King James.

LeBron James is still the best player in the National Basketball Association and is headed into free agency this offseason.

Note that the "Indiana" during the match was "+10". "Of course I didn't think it was a goal tend". Another person who contends that it was goaltending was Oladipo, who complained about it after that game. "Maybe. They pay their hard-earned money to come see us play, and for me and my ballclub for us to go out there and have a game like we had tonight, it was just my show and our show of appreciation".

"The guys responded", Lue said, adding his assistant coaches challenged the players to play better coming out of halftime. He had 10 rebounds, eight assists.

"The series ain't over", Oladipo said. This was crucial, given Kevin Love's abysmal 2-of-11 shooting (just 1 three), and JR Smith, the usual three point barnburner, being held to a grand total of 0 points off 8 shots.
