LeBron James acted like a super hero on Wednesday night to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 98-95 win over the Indiana Pacers in the NBA Playoffs. James scored 44 points, grabbed ten rebounds and eight assists in the contest, which further adds to the significance.
Just over 10 seconds remained in the game and Victor Oladipo was entrusted with taking on James and giving the away side a precious win. He turned the ball over critically on consecutive possessions within the last two minutes, but considering how sloppy the team was liable to play at times throughout the game, you could hardly pin the loss on Domas, who truly had a very good night.
The Cavaliers enter Game 6 in IN with a huge mental edge.

Two weeks of demonstrations looked to have peaked when Serzh Sarksyan quit as prime minister. Denying this reality would be a political shortsightedness.
James is already averaging 42.7 minutes and 34.8 points in this series. Tipoff is set for 8 pm. If they lose to the Cavs on their home court for the second time in the series, the Cavaliers will advance to the second round and the Pacers will begin making vacation plans. The 76ers are an intriguing team who got hot at the end of the season, but I don't think they can top Toronto in a seven game series. "So I was able to turn and get to my spot". The ball bounced on the line - and was therefore out, but the official didn't call it - then bounced back up, hit LeBron on the arm and went clearly out of bounds. However, something happened after that and#LeBron James went into Beast Mode. Doesn't get much better than that.
One other note to Pacers fans: The goaltending call is not why IN lost. "Send me down some rest and we'll get back out there on Friday". "They paid their hard-earned money to come see us play and for me and my ball club and for us to go out there and have a game like we had tonight, it was just my show and our show of appreciation to them". After being outscored by 15 points in the third quarter, in tied the game with under 30 seconds remaining, but were unable to finish the comeback. Another person who contends that it was goaltending was Oladipo, who complained about it after that game. 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. "Definitely huge", Oladipo said. The pressure to stop him is oppressively conceptual: Should you take a slow step, guess the wrong move or lean the wrong way, LeBron is virtually guaranteed to capitalize.
One of the Best Three Point Shooters of the current era, Kyle Korver. He shot 14-of-24 from the field and a flawless 15-of-15 from the free throw line.
