Lebron James Nails Game Winning Buzzer Beater

Published

on

Lebron James finished the night with the 38 points to take 3-0 series lead against the Toronto Raptors.

His last two points will be the only anyone remembers from that game. With less than 5 seconds left in tied game, James stepped back on the left wing and ended the game with a floater.

Tie game, down one,” James said. “I live for those moments.”

“I’ve been doing that since I was like six, seven, eight years old,” James said. “Maybe even before that. There’s a picture floating around of me beside a Little Tikes hoop with a saggy Pamper on and I was doing it back then and all the way up until now, at 33.

“Things that you dream about, that you get those opportunities and I’ve been fortunate enough to get a handful of those in some of the biggest moments in my career.”

The Raptors twitter account was not in the mood for celebrations after the shot.

“I ran out of words a while ago,” said Kyle Korver, trying to describe the shot.  “I’ve seen him shoot that shot, that game-winner, countless times when he’s messing around in shootaround and practice. It’s always like, why would he shoot a shot like that — to win a playoff game?

“Unbelievable play. He did it again. He’s been so huge in those moments for us all year.”

James had a message to his fans at home watching and thinking about attempting the shot.

“It is very difficult,” James said, smiling. “Don’t try it at home.”

Chris Paul, Rondo, And Brandon Ingram Brawl In Lakers Home Opener

Published

on

The Houston Rockets downed the Los Angeles Lakers 125-115 in Lebron James first home game at the Staples Center. James Harden led all scorers with 35 points, all of that is overshadowed by the 4th quarter brawl.

With four minutes left in the game, Rockets guard James Harden drew a foul while driving to the hoop, making a layup over Lakers forward Brandon Ingram to put the Rockets up by 109-108. Ingram, though, didn’t like the call. The 21-year-old quickly shoved Harden in the back, drawing a technical foul.

Ingram, Paul and Rondo were all ejected from the game after officials reviewed the incident. The three will likely face suspensions and fines from the league as soon as Sunday — since the Rockets play again on Sunday night.

“That’s unacceptable,” Carmelo Anthony said of the alleged spitting by Rondo. “You don’t do that to nobody — in sports, on the street. That’s blatant disrespect. You don’t do that. That’s unacceptable. … You don’t even see that in the streets, man. I don’t know what else to say about that.”

Harden defended Paul’s reaction.

“I mean Chris had to stand up for himself,” Harden said. “It is what it is. I don’t care what man, anywhere, anytime, NBA game or in the streets.”

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Lakers officials are backing Rondo’s “contention that he didn’t spit” on Paul, while the Rockets are insisting that he did.

James who is best friends with Chris Paul weighed in on what happened after the game. “I just tried to calm things down, that’s all,” James said. “Play basketball.”

NBA Players also weighed on their thoughts about the fight.
