LeBron James sinks three for buzzer-beating win

NBA Playoffs 2018 schedule, scores, updates, highlights: Cavs-Pacers, Wizards-Raptors, Jazz-Thunder, Wolves-Rockets

James' buzzer-beating 3-pointer lifted the Cavs to a 98-95 win, giving them a crucial 3-2 series lead. And in Game 5, James' block of Oladipo inside of four seconds left probably should have been called a goaltend.

"As a kid, you always have those "three-two-one" moments, and being able to have one of those moments, that's what it kind of felt like", James said after the game, as reported by ESPN.

Domantas Sabonis led IN with 22 points off the bench while the Cavaliers hit 26 of their 27 free throws.

The Cavs once again surrendered a double-digit second half lead, for the fourth time in the series, and James is hoping him and his teammates can play at their best throughout next time.

Needing to win to keep their season alive, Friday night's Game six at Bankers Life Fieldhouse will be a gold out. Tipoff is set for 8 pm.

The tie-breaker came from LeBron again when he caught the inbounds pass and dropped the victor over Thaddeus Young, giving the Cavaliers a 3-2 lead in their playoff series, the Guardian noted.

James's shot gives National Basketball Association fans (except, as noted, for Pacers supporters) something much, much more fun to talk about until Game 6 rolls around. "I try to make plays like that all the time".

LeBron James helped Cleveland snatch victory from the Pacers on Wednesday, while adding yet another chapter of greatness to his resume.

Watching at home, noted LeBron James anti-fan Skip Bayless of Fox Sports thumbed his nose at James' shot. The Pacers' decision not to foul James before he could ever get into his shooting motion at the other end, however, cannot.

One other note to Pacers fans: The goaltending call is not why IN lost.

"It was a goaltend", Oladipo said. "They have been here before and they have done it, so I just got to take notes from them, learn from them and follow their lead". Often on bang-bang plays like this one an official will call goaltending just to give themselves the chance to review it, but this crew did not (and that is a tough call to make accurately in real time). The Pacers are making only 71.1 percent from the stripe in the series; compared to their regular-season average it has cost them seven points over the five games. Not this series, not a season in which the front office remade the roster, twice, and coach Tyronn Lue needed a two-week absence to deal with personal health issues.

"Give him credit where credit is due", Oladipo said.

One of the Best Three Point Shooters of the current era, Kyle Korver. Posting 1 of 4 shooting in the first quarter, things were dispiriting but not quite dire at this point.
