All hail King James.
With the Cleveland Cavaliers trailing their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series with the Chicago Bulls, LeBron James would not be denied on Wednesday night. Just ask Jimmy Butler.
Peep how James took Jimmy Buckets to the hole, dunking on the Bulls' All-Star shooting guard and paving the way for a 106-91 Game 2 victory for the Cavs. James finished with 33 points, eight rebounds and five assists. But this dunk on Butler, though...straight nasty. The series is tied 1-1.
In the later game Wednesday night, the Houston Rockets nearly lost to a Chris Paul-less Los Angeles Clippers for the second straight game, but wound up winning 115-109 to tie the series at one game apiece as well. Dwight Howard finished with a monstrous 24 points and 16 rebounds. CP3 missed a second straight game, nursing his sore hamstring.
