LeBron James Does It Again, Gets Cavs One Step Closer to the Finals

The legend of LeBron James grew all the more on Saturday night as the Cavaliers’ superstar made one of the signature shots of this or any season to give his team a win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals against the Toronto Raptors. The power guard, the man that has created that position out of thin air, made his way to the left side of the court before letting go a shot with all of the finesse in the world to continue what has been a scintillating personal week for him.

That shot won them the game and got the Cavs to a 3-0 lead in the series. There truly looks to be no way back for the hapless Raptors now, and their chances of leaving behind their nearly men tag are ever evaporating before our very eyes. This shot only adds to the week that he had. He had 43 points in victory, in which he took over the third quarter on his own, and even saw the soccer club he owns two percent of- Liverpool- reach the final of the prestigious Champions League tournament. To put it mildly, the King is living large and in charge.


The final score of the game was 105-103 to the away team, and it was a hard-fought contest throughout, with the Raptors clawing back into the game in the fourth quarter with a fantastic showing in which they outscored the Cavs by 12 points in the end. But the most crucial two points, the ones LeBron scored at the buzzer, ended up being the margin in which they lost by. The Raptors once again look like they are done, but they can take a bit of solace in the fact that it was the best player in the game- quickly launching himself into the conversation as the best ever- that beat them once again.
