The moment required brilliance. Now, they're getting all that and more now, but, courtesy of LeBron James, it's for all the wrong reasons.
Having gone 7-3 ten games into the postseason and winning the last four games that they've played, including three straight wins just three games into their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Toronto Raptors, the Cleveland Cavaliers are well on their way to an Eastern Conference Finals berth. Cleveland won the game, 105-103, because James had 38 points, seven assists, six rebounds, three steals, and one awkward floater as time expired to turn a whole bunch of National Basketball Association players into witnesses to King James. "I reside for these moments".
Next it's the Celtics, minus Kyrie Irving, vs. the Cavs, with LeBron James. After some tight hugs, he was again atop the scorer's desk - identical to he did after a last-second 3-pointer to win Recreation 5 in opposition to in - and celebrated a win that was up for grabs. "Possibly even earlier than that". There's a picture floating around of me beside a Little Tikes hoop with a saggy Pamper on and I was doing it back then and all the way up until now, at 33.
From holding his extra cell phones to picking up his dry cleaning, they just want you to know how dedicated they are.
After the game had finished, the Raptors point guard spoke to the media and revealed what was going through his mind immediately after James made the incredible shot that decided the game. Because his man is usually the opposing team's best rim-protector, this opens up space in the lane for James to dominate inside.
Said Korver: "I ran out of words a while ago".
Perhaps there was an element of luck as the Raptors looked to have all the momentum late in the fourth quarter of Game 3 and one shot or missed shot could've changed the entire series. "You see him shoot that all the time with one hand in practice", Love said.

Asked by reporters on Air Force One earlier this month about the transaction, Trump said: "You'll have to ask Michael Cohen . Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone", he says in a statement.
"Unbelievable play. He did it again. He is been so large in these moments for us all yr". That is why they were able to avoid playing LeBron and company until the second round.
"It is rather troublesome", James stated, smiling.
Tallying only eight points, DeRozan was a frigid 3-of-12 from the field with three turnovers.
Coach Dwane Casey kept All-Star wing DeMar DeRozan - who was hurting their cause at both ends - over on the bench near him for the game's last 14:16. It positively sucks to observe it. "He had a tough shooting night, just 3-for-12 but again even when you are not shooting well you can defend and do things to help us win, but those nights are going to happen".
Casey wanted to trap James on the final play, but he went by defenders at "100 miles per hour".
Lowry knew James would take the ball up the left facet, and as soon as he pulled up there wasn't a lot that could possibly be accomplished.
Love disappeared the fourth quarter though, and took zero shots in the final stanza.
After profitable the collection' first two video games in Canada, the Cavs got here dwelling and gained a brawl with the Raptors, who simply can not beat James. To put that number in perspective, that's more walk-off shots in the playoffs than Michael Jordan (3) and Kobe Bryant (1) lay claim to combined.
