LeBron James wins game with block, buzzer-beater
LeBron James put on a one-man show in leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime on Wednesday night.
The game was tied at 138 with 24 seconds left and Minnesota had the ball. Jimmy Butler was winding down the clock and made a move towards the basket, but James came out of nowhere with a block to keep the game tied:

JR Smith called timeout with one second left, allowing the Cavs to set up a play. They threw a pass to LeBron around the free throw line, and he caught it and made a fadeaway move and sunk the shot to win the game 140-138.

James was brilliant in the game. He shot 16 of 22 for 37 points with 10 rebounds and 15 assists, as well as the big block. What a game, especially at a time when the Cavs need the positive press.
