LeBron Scores Victory for the Cavs with Wicked 3-Pointer

April 26, 2018

LeBron James earned the Cleveland Cavaliers a 98-95 win against the Indiana Pacers last night in Game 5, as well as a 3-2 series lead.

The score was tied at 95 when Victor Oladipo was blocked by James at the rim. Despite the Pacers’ optimism with a foul to give; in the 3.0 seconds remaining, LeBron made a wicked 3-pointer that secured the Cavs’ win.

The entire game saw James at his very best with 44 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Following his tie to Jordan’s 866 league record in March, there’s been a lot of comparing James to Michael Jordan – and rightfully so. In fact, James has surpassed Jordan in a number of ways – including accomplishing more All-NBA selections and playoff win shares, and recently beat Jordan’s league record of 866 consecutive 10+ point games.

James was quoted to have a very humble outlook on the comparison, saying in March; “anytime I'm mentioned with some of the greats, and arguably the greatest basketball player of all time in Mike, it's just another feat for me to be appreciative and humbled by what I've been able to do. I look at it and say, 'Wow, I can't believe I'm in this position, knowing where I come from." (ESPN.com).

Both Jordan and James are undeniable NBA greats – but as it stands, three-time NBA champion James has some ways to go until he’s Just Like Mike: a six-time NBA champion.

The Cavs will go on the road to try and close out this series against the Pacers in Game 6 on Friday. We’re looking forward to seeing how LeBron will blow us away this time around.
