National Basketball Association fraternity amazed by LeBron game-winner — Twitter Reaction

But it wasn't enough.

From holding his extra cell phones to picking up his dry cleaning, they just want you to know how dedicated they are.

After a rough blowout loss in Game 2, the Raptors came to Cleveland hoping to avoid a dreaded 3-0 hole.

But as James left the Quicken Loans Arena, the 33-year-old said despite being worn out, it was positive. "Basically our season's on the line".

Through 10 games in the 2018 playoffs, the King is averaging 34.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists.

And Toronto's Kyle Lowry, who scored 27 points, called on his team-mate to respond. DeRozan, despondent at not having the ability to do extra or assist when it mattered most, went simply Three of 12 from the sphere and scored eight factors. Then James raced down the court and delivered the dagger. The Cavaliers defeated the Raptors 105-103. "I was able to hit a floater off the glass".

Casey wanted to trap James on the final play, but he went by defenders at "100 miles per hour". Just when you thought LeBron couldn't "wow" you anymore, he goes out and does something like this. At 33, he continues to dazzle with a seemingly endless arsenal.

Then that guy makes that play at that point.

What was the degree of difficulty of the shot, James was asked afterwards?

With that. With still another preposterous LeBron James masterpiece, there is only one thing left to say. "Don't try it at home!"

It was the fifth buzzer-beater of James' post-season career.

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.

Cleveland was dead exhausted after it got shoved into a Game 7 decider by tough-as-nails Indiana. That problem was they left 2.2 seconds on the clock. The Raptors had staged an impressive comeback in the fourth quarter, so it made it all the more painful.

Kyle Lowry deserves credit for brining Toronto back into this game.

"Casey tried everything and put us in some dilemmas at times", said Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue. The Raptors also helped Cleveland's cause with 17 turnovers, which yielded 18 points. "A lot of teams have struggled here".

Hill is a three-point threat without the notoriety of any of the aforementioned players but leave him outside and he'll make you pay too.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers are now just one win away from advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals once and there's no surprise who has been leading the way. "He had a tough night", said Casey. "When do I decide what shot to take?"

It was more of the same in the third.

Even by James's lofty standard, this was a shot to remember, a picture-perfect banking runner set up by a full-court sprint through Toronto's defense. Of the 129 teams in National Basketball Association history to fall behind 3-0, none has come back to win. Still the Cavaliers led 24-19 at the end of a first quarter that saw Love collect six points and eight rebounds. "We know they're going to come out, just like they did (Saturday) night in that fourth quarter to try to play and to start the game that way so we got to be prepared for that".

"There was way more time than I needed", he said.

"Rumble young man, rumble", he said. He inserted 6-foot guard Fred VanVleet and benched forward Ibaka, going with a smaller lineup to push the pace.

The Raptors finished the regular season as the top seed in the East with a 59-23 record, nine games ahead of fourth-place Cleveland (50-32).
