LeBron James Just Single-Handedly Saved His Team’s Season

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers hit the NBA’s third game-winning shot in as many days on Sunday when he launched from the corner with just seconds to go, earning his team the 86-84 victory against the Chicago Bulls.

Meanwhile, Pau Gasol and the Bulls were all…

It’s been a wild weekend for the NBA. On Friday, Derrick Rose of the Bulls hit a game-winning three that won his team the game against the Cavs. Then on Saturday, Paul Pierce of the Washington Wizards called game with a bank shot that beat the Hawks.

It’s all been a lot, as summed up by this fast-moving Vine:

James struggled all of Sunday, going 10-30 from the field. But all that people will remember is the shot that evened the series against the Bulls at two games apiece.

The shot ended what was a tense game, which included Derrick Rose hitting an acrobatic layup with less than eight seconds to go to tie the game, 84-84…

A questionable offensive foul called on James just seconds before that…

Jimmy Butler’s heroic three-pointer with roughly 30 seconds left in the game…

And most controversially, first-year Cavaliers coach David Blatt trying to call a timeout with just 8.4 seconds left. If the referees had seen it, the team would have been called for a violation, and the Cavaliers likely would have lost the game.

Game 5 of the series is on Tuesday. Buckle up.
