How in The World Did LeBron James Hit This Game-Winning Shot?

The King does it again.

Published May 11, 2015

He's the King for a reason.

After watching Derrick Rose sink the Cleveland Cavaliers with a buzzer beater in Game 3, LeBron James did it that much better in Game 4.

King James buried a game-winning corner three-pointer at the buzzer over the out-stretched arm of Jimmy Butler to give the Cavs an 86-84 win over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, tying the series at 2-2.

Shockingly, the Cavs' final play was originally designed for James to take the ball out of bounds, but LeBron over rode coach David Blatt's decision on that. The game-winning shot also could have been negated had it not been for Cavs' assistant coach Tyronn Lue pulling Blatt off the court and preventing him from calling timeout, when the team didn't have any timeouts remaining.

Don't ever underestimate the King. Game 5 shifts back to Cleveland on Tuesday night.


In other playoff action Sunday, the Los Angeles Clippers scored a 128-95 Game 4 win over the Houston Rockets to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. DeAndre Jordan had 26 points.
