Twitter goes bananas watching LeBron James block Oladipo, hit game-winner

LeBron James

LeBron James closed out Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers with an epic sequence that only further demonstrates his greatness.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star, with the game tied up at 95-95, blocked Victor Oladipo’s shot, though many argued it was goal tending, on one end of the court. Then he hit the game-winner on the other end of the court, putting Cleveland up 3-2 in the series with a thrilling 98-95 win.

Here’s a look at the block, which really got Twitter riled up because the ball hit the backboard first (classic goaltending).

Then James hit the dagger, which we’ll show you now.

Afterward, during his post-game interview, James got the Gatorade treatment from his teammates.

The reactions to all this were just amazing.
