Last night, LeBron James proved just how clutch he can be in the game’s most crucial of moments. The Cavs, already down two games to one, were desperate for a win to even up the series and take back the home court advantage, and an almost effortless fade-away three by the two-time champion accomplished just that. After winning the game for Cleveland and sucking out all the momentum that Derrick Rose garnered with his own buzzer-beater, the Eastern Conference semi-final series is now a best-of-three affair – and it’s anyone’s game.
One of the many headlines to sprout from yesterday’s events is that LeBron and MJ are now tied for buzzer-beating game-winners in the Playoffs. We’re not debating whose shots were better or more important – we’re merely juxtaposing these fantastic feats to show you once and for all that LeBron is one of the clutchest players in the history of the game. Enjoy the retrospective below and get ready for an all-out war in Game 5.
