As if dumping 38 points on the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night wasn't enough, King James ran the length of the floor to swat this game-tying shot from Rose with 48.8 seconds left. Yeah... James went up on a Tuesday and came down with Rose's shot. Chris Webber, who was calling the game with Marv Albert, was right on point to say that come-from-behind block was a signature Tayshaun Prince play.
The Cleveland Cavaliers wound up winning 106-101 behind James's monstrous 38 points, 12 boards, six assists, three steals and three blocks. Good Lord, he did the most. The Cavs now own a 3-2 series lead, one win away from punching their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Other playoff action Tuesday night saw the Houston Rockets defeat the Los Angeles Clippers 124-103 to stay alive in their playoff series. James Harden fought off the flu to notch his first playoff triple-double of 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Beard basketball! The Rockets pulled within 3-2 in the series.
