    LeBron nails triple at the buzzer as Cavs nip Pacers to move closer to East semis

    Apr 26, 2018

    CLEVELAND — LeBron James hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, a crowning moment for another brilliant performance, to give Cleveland a 98-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night (Thursday, Manila time) in Game Five, putting the Cavaliers within one victory of advancing in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

    Moments after blocking Victor Oladipo's possible go-ahead driving layup, James caught the inbounds pass, took two dribbles and dropped the winner over Thaddeus Young.

    As Cleveland's sellout crowd exploded, James hugged rookie teammate Cedi Osman before jumping on the scorer's table to celebrate another of those moments that will define his career.

    James finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and went 15 of 15 from the line.

    Kyle Korver added 19 points and Cleveland's much-maligned defense tightened just in time as the Cavaliers seized their first lead in the first-round series after being down 1-0 and 2-1.

    Cleveland can close out Indiana with a win Friday night in Indianapolis.

    Domantas Sabonis scored 22 points, and Young had 16 for the Pacers.
