LeBron James Chase-Down Block Prevents D.Rose’s Game-Tying Bucket (Video)
The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a crucial victory in a pivotal Game 5 battle with the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, taking a 3-2 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semi-final series. And the defining moment of the game, not surprisingly, came from none other than LeBron James.
With under a minute remaining in regulation, and the Bulls trailing by two, Derrick Rose drove through the lane on a fast-break and attempted a 7-foot fadeaway jumper that would have tied things up, had it not been for this LeBron James chase-down block.
Check it out:
LeBron’s performance throughout the rest of the evening wasn’t too shabby either, with game-highs in points (38), rebounds (12), steals (3, tied with Derrick Rose), and blocks (3, tied with Iman Shumpert), to go along with a team-high 6 assists.
