LeBron James: 'Just Give Me the Ball'

WATCH Kid watching Game 5 calls LeBron's game-winner before it happens

The record books will show the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Indiana Pacers 98-95 thanks to Lebron's last-gasp three-pointer, but was his chasedown block on Victor Oladipo seconds before legal?

The Cavs now lead the playoff series against the Indiana Pacers 3-2.

Oladipo put up a shot, but James slammed the ball against the backboard for a block. "You prepare for so long in those situations". There are no guarantees in a game where even the best process can clang off the rim, but there is some sort of relief in knowing that James will give any opportunity a near-optimal chance to play out to its fullest.

"I have just got to follow the vets", said Larry Nance Jr., who will be playing in his first potential series closing game. "(The ball) hit the backboard, then he blocked it. "When you look at it on the replay, it's clearly goal tending".

I'm not even sure Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue had as much faith in James as Dave did. "It just sucks, honestly". "Of course I didn't think it was a goaltend, man. ..."

The officials didn't call it that way on the court, and the play is only eligible for video review if a goaltend is called (to be fair to the officials, that was an incredibly close play that is very hard to call in real time).

Note that the "Indiana" during the match was "+10".

"J.R. was fantastic", James said. Domantas Sabonis led the Pacers with 22 points. Oladipo said that the series wasn't over with and a team has to win four games to move on.

The Pacers were shell-shocked after Game 5 and have to recover Friday at home or their Cinderella season will come to an end. "He really was able to impose his will". Ultimately, LeBron showcased why he is arguably the greatest player now in the game by winning the game legitimately by himself at the very end.

IN committed seven turnovers in the quarter - it had six in the first 6ᄑ minutes - and James scored 15 points as Cleveland won the quarter 32-17 to take an 81-73 lead into the fourth. Lance was "Good Lance" tonight, particularly in the second quarter, during which his savant-level passing and fearless-finishing kept the offense humming and helped open up a ten-point lead over the Cavs.

James was at his best Wednesday night in the Cavs' crucial Game 5 victory over the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference first round.

James wound up with 44 points on 14-of-24 shooting from the floor. They were up 11 in the fourth quarter of Game 5.

"It's one game", James said, going back to his shot. James shot 54.2 percent from the field overall, 36.7 percent from the three-point line, and 73.1 percent from the foul line. The 36-year-old has done whatever Cleveland's needed.
