LeBron James showed why he’s the best player on the planet late in Wednesday’s overtime thriller against the Timberwolves.
The game was close throughout, and the visitors had a chance to emerge victorious — with the ball, and the game tied at 138-138.
James had other plans, though.
Jimmy Butler drove the lane with a few seconds remaining in the game, but James denied his layup attempt. Check out this emphatic block.
The Cavs then called a timeout with one second remaining in the game, and that was all James needed. He received an inbounds pass near the free-throw line, and then proceeded to turn and drain a fadeaway jumper for the walk-off win.
What a sequence of events.
