James was at his best Wednesday night in the Cavs' crucial Game 5 victory over the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference first round. After an epic recovery block (and probably a goaltend) on Victor Oladipo on the opposite end of the court, Cleveland would have three seconds to win the game. "As a kid, you always have those '3.2.1.' moments".
It's games like this that will make that first NBA title so amazing someday. And as most hoops fans know, his father, Larry Sr, is known as one of Cleveland's all-time greats. He delivered for the Cavs in the fourth quarter. The teams are averaging just 93.4 possessions per game, easily the lowest total of any series this postseason. The Cavaliers may have a 3-2 advantage in the series at this point but they're going to have to produce some other options offensively. They decided to blitz him, trap him, and force the ball out of his hands. But at the same time, it's probable that somehow and some way LeBron will lead the Cavs to the Finals once again by sheer willpower. With the win, the Cavaliers have a chance to close out this series. "A few of them kind of paid attention to me when I was in high school as well". They had a foul to give, so I wanted to go quick so they couldn't give up that foul, because we had no more timeouts. J.R. Smith was 0-for-8. "He's been fantastic the last two games defensively".
According to a report shared by 'Pro Basketball Talk', the 76ers are confident about signing LeBron James this offseason.
Said Pacers center Myles Turner: "It's clearly a goaltend, but that doesn't change the fact that they made the game-winning shot".
"He was able to get to the basket and attack the rim way too much", McMillan said. In Game 5, he hit 5 threes off 9 attempts, 6-of-11 overall to go with 6 REB and a steal. Obviously, it sucks, we want to win.
Korver's sharpshooting helped him to 19 points in 32.9 minutes last night.
It's also worth mentioning that virtually nothing has been easy for the Cavs this season. For the record, the NBA decided that it was a missed goaltending call - which once again, had no effect on the outcome of the game. Indiana was hurt by weak perimeter shooting (six of 20) and free throw shooting (21 of 27) while Cleveland was nearly perfect at the line. I don't think anybody is discouraged or upset.
At $4,300, Korver was projected for 23.2 FanDuel points but finished with 28.2 at 6.56x value.
