James hit a buzzer-beater to end Indiana's late run and give the Cavaliers a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference.

LeBron James' game-winning three-pointer in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers will be on highlight reels for decades. Most importantly, before scoring the winner, James had blocked Victor Oladipo's attempted lay-up, which could have won the game for Indiana.

Asked about the play, James said, joking, "I definitely thought it was a goaltend".

Through five games, IN actually has the better point differential with a composite score of 482-472.

All of that being said, there is one team that could offer James the money he is looking for and a much better team around him than he now has in Cleveland. Tipoff is set for 8 pm. The 76ers are an intriguing team who got hot at the end of the season, but I don't think they can top Toronto in a seven game series. "We have to flush (Game 5) as soon as possible and get ourselves ready to play on Friday".

But given the palace intrigue in Cleveland this season, is it any wonder that James is in this position once again?

Considering that the Pacers want to protect the paint, one player above all others could get the help he needs offensively if the Cavaliers play faster.: Kevin Love. I suspect that, had any Pacer tried to give a foul, James was prepared to immediately go up and make it be in the act of shooting.

LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers are involved in one heck of a battle with the Indiana Pacers in Round 1 of the play-offs and the two sides once again produced a stunning contest on Wednesday night.

After the game, Oladipo spoke about that play and he didn't mince words, telling reporters, "it was a goaltend". "They paid their hard-earned money to come see us play and for me and my ball club and for us to go out there and have a game like we had tonight, it was just my show and our show of appreciation to them".

For the Pacers, it was a heartbreaking loss as they rallied from an eight-point deficit to tie the game.

"Jose has been steady for us all year", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook led the way with 45 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists. When you're open, take the shots and hopefully make them. Oladipo said that the series wasn't over with and a team has to win four games to move on.

James finished the quarter with 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting - all his buckets came on drives to the hoop - while his teammates were 3-15 overall, 1-for-9 on 3-pointers and had nine points.
