Ryan Shazier joined the many NBA fans that reacted to LeBron James' game-winning shot on Saturday night. James' shot as time expired lifted Cleveland to a victory as well as a 3-0 series lead in their second-round matchup over the Toronto Raptors.
LeBron is the 🐐🐐. He proving night after night‼️‼️‼️
James, who led all scorers with 38 points, took the ball the length of the court before banking in the winning shot.
"We had no more timeouts...I had to get open," James told ESPN after the game. "Took ‘em full court, and was able to hit a floater off the glass. It’s my job in the fourth to close it.
"(The Raptors) gave us everything they had and more. We could play so much better, but it’s a gutsy win."
James also tallied six rebounds while leading the Cavs with seven assists and three steals. Kevin Love also played big, scoring 21 points to go with a game-high 16 rebounds.
"Kev was unbelievable again tonight," James said. "Especially in the fourth quarter. He was wonderful."
After winning the first two games of the series in Toronto, James said that he and his teammates were ready for a more physical approach by the Raptors entering Game 3. Despite the Raptors' physicality, James was still able to 14 of his 26 shots while also hitting 9 of his 11 free throws.
