America Is Going Crazy For LeBron James' Latest Buzzer-Beating Three-Pointer

Cavs' LeBron James Felt Like 'A Kid' After Game-Winning 3-Pointer Against Pacers

Cavs' LeBron James Felt Like 'A Kid' After Game-Winning 3-Pointer Against Pacers

LeBron James said he felt like "a kid" again after hitting a game-winning three-pointer to give the Cleveland Cavaliers a 3-2 lead in their first round series against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

Indiana Pacers guard Cory Joseph accounted for six points, six rebounds and five rebounds in Wednesday's 98-95 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It was nearly a carbon copy of LeBron James' buzzer-beating three against the Orlando Magic in Game 2 of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals.

The 14-time All Star revelled in his game-winner, saying later that he "felt like a kid again" after a monstrous 44-point night during which he hit 14-of-24 field-goal attempts and all 15 of his free throws.

The Cavaliers enter Game 6 in IN with a huge mental edge.

You could also argue that Indy should be heading home up 3-2 and say the Pacers have been the better team.

Cleveland can close out IN with a win Friday night IN Indianapolis. Tipoff is set for 8 pm.

"In the first round of the NBA Playoff finals, James" Cleveland Cavaliers are taking on the Indiana Pacers.

Essentially, for these players, the role players - playing hard is going to free up James to be the primary playmaker and make everyone's job easier. They almost pulled out Game 3 and survived Game 4, when someone other than James (Kyle Korver) finally made some buckets down the stretch.

Unsurprisingly, Oladipo saw that play - and specifically James' block - in a different light.

Or, you know, it could be argued that even after being slapped by Young, the ball was last touched by James as it popped out of his hand.

Besides the Indiana Pacers game one blowout, each game in this series could have gone either way.

After the game, Oladipo spoke about that play and he didn't mince words, telling reporters, "it was a goaltend". 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. Korver and Calderon each nailed two three-pointers, all four of which came off assists from James. Posting 1 of 4 shooting in the first quarter, things were dispiriting but not quite dire at this point. "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".

The 33-year-old, of course, saved his best for last. "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".

"This series ain't over", Oladipo said.
