L2M: LeBron goaltended on Oladipo late in Cavs' Game 5 win

All of LeBron's 35 points through 3 quarters on Wednesday came at the rim or from the foul line.

Cleveland inbounded with 3 seconds left.

After a heartbreaking finish to Wednesday's Game 5 in Cleveland, the even keel Victor Oladipo remained optimistic. In the 11 years since leading the Cavs to their first Finals appearance, James has won three titles, three Finals MVPs, and played with All-Stars like Dwyane Wade, Kyrie Irving, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and Kevin Love. But who's to say they even run that play?

That being said, Indiana has still found a way to put the ball in the basket, scoring 95 in their last outing despite just 12 from Oladipo.

The only other mistake in the final two minutes hurt the Cavaliers.

Yes, I know what actually happened.

As far as LeBron James is concerned, the entire complaint is baseless.

That could be in the NBA Finals against the Warriors or Rockets, or a round earlier vs. the 76ers.

Oladipo dazzled the national TV audience in the opening game of this series, pouring in 32 points and knocking home 6-of-9 from behind the arc.

But given the palace intrigue in Cleveland this season, is it any wonder that James is in this position once again? The Cavs led the latter contest by 16 points in the third quarter.

If only LeBron James had the ability to be clutch.

"Our rule is once the ball touches the glass, a defender cannot touch it", Borgia said.

LeBron James is still the best player in the NBA and is headed into free agency this offseason.

Oladipo let his feelings be known and criticized the officiating. But because it was a bang-bang play and goaltending wasn't called in live action, referees aren't allowed to go the monitors for a review. All three Cleveland victories occurred in nail-biting fashion. Each side has stolen a win on the other's home court, and each has toiled under the anemic pace of this series. Could that missed call change the complexion of the series?

There have been six games in which a player has posted at least a 44-10-8 in the playoffs since 1983-84, which is as far back as you can search for such an accomplishment on Basketball-Reference. With the win, the Cavaliers have a chance to close out this series. The three was big-time.

Great players live for the biggest moments. They own a 111-97 edge in free throws attempted and an 87-69 advantage in free throws made. With makeshift hoops and my socks as a basketball and making the noise.

Had it been called correctly, the threesome would have been able to stop the game and look at the monitors.

"I got a step on him", Oladipo said. He has been connected to the Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Philadelphia 76ers.
