Victor Oladipo on his final shot: "It was a goaltend"

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

LeBron James did it again, this time possibly with his team's season and even his Cleveland career on the line. There's replays... I guess it's a tough plays at the time for them, but it was a goaltend. Cleveland were staring at the prospect of trailing 2-3 to IN but James had other ideas, his clutch play lifting the Cavaliers to a 98-95 win on Wednesday.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue felt it was just James doing what he does best, saying: "As soon as it left his hand, it looked ideal".

44/10/8 - Is LeBron the GOAT?

You can make a credible argument free-throw shooting accuracy has been a pivotal part of this series.

LeBron James' shooting percentage, or 14 of 24 for a 44-point effort against IN in Game 5. The Pacers are making only 71.1 percent from the stripe in the series; compared to their regular-season average it has cost them seven points over the five games.

LeBron James scored 44 points and made 10 rebounds. If he can be this efficient the rest of the postseason (and get some help), watch out, y'all! Whatever he changed, No. 23 needs to continue doing that. We made the shots right away.

On the ensuing play, James came off a pin-down screen against Thaddeus Young and got freed up on the in-bounds. IN ended the game with just 20 three-point attempts, their lowest total of the series and their 12th lowest of the season. Or Darren Collison having an off night and going 1-of-5 from the floor.

"In that first half, we missed a lot of assignments", Lue said.

Roberts said the Sky board's withdrawal of its support for Fox's offer was "the flawless step as far as we are concerned today". Sky also is a major producer of movies and TV shows and a holder of major European sporting rights.

Despite the higher profit, Ford's adjusted pretax profit margin fell to 5.2 percent from 6.4 percent in the same quarter in 2017. The company now expects to reach an 8 percent profit margin by 2020, two years earlier than it had been targeting.

26-of-27 - No. 23 made all 15 of his free throws, and the Cavs were about as close to flawless as you can be as a team.

Even though the Cavs were swept by the Spurs in the Finals, just getting there was an impressive feat with James flanked by the likes of Larry Hughes, Sasha Pavlovic, and Daniel Gibson. This is a best-of-seven affair, and Oladipo and Co. will have the home-court advantage - and hey, maybe even a little love from the refs - on Friday as they try to force a Game 7.

2-of-21 - Sorry guys, not everything can be positive in this one.

Multiple players on both teams struggled to get going. The Pacers aren't out of the series yet: they have played equal to the Cavaliers for much of the series, and held a 2-1 lead early on.

"I was in the building in 2009 when he made that 3-pointer against the (Orlando) Magic", Nance told Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com during his post-game media availability.

But which shot was better?

LeBron James is still the best player in the National Basketball Association and is headed into free agency this offseason.
