What can I say, LeBron was magnificent. He just proved everyone wrong who said he couldn't hit the clutch shots or make the big plays down the stretch. He scored the Cavs last 25 points and 29 of their last 30 in their win against the Pistons, on the road, in double OT. That's insane. Of course the huge question here is how in the hell did a team as well known for its defense as the Pistons are allow a guy to score 25 straight points? And it's not exactly like every shot LeBron had was some kind of insane fallaway jumper that fell. His basket to send the game to overtime was a dunk. This was right after he dunked on the previous possession. Plus he got a lay-up to win the game.
Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that's Pistons basketball.
But hey, the Pistons gave LeBron an opportunity and man oh man did he take advantage of it. This definitely has to go down as one of the best playoff performances ever, since it was a double overtime game on the road that was won essentially by one man. I think the Cavs wrap this up at home in Game 6. Cheers to you LeBron for making us care about basketball again, at least until you get behind 0-3 in the Finals to the Spurs.
