A shot fit for a King: Three takeaways as LeBron James’ buzzer beater gives Cavs Game 5 win

CLEVELAND– With the ballgame tied up, 95-95, and the Pacers in possession of the ball with 26 seconds remaining, it appeared as if the Cavaliers’ season was in jeopardy.

That is, until LeBron James made plays that only LeBron James can make on both ends of the floor.

After blocking what would have been the go-ahead basket by Victor Oladipo, James caught the inbounds pass from Jeff Green and nailed a dagger three-pointer at the buzzer to give the Cavs the 98-95 win.

The Cavs now lead 3-2 in the series. Here are three takeaways from the win.
