For the fourth time in his career, LeBron James hits a playoff buzzer beater to a 98-95 Cavs victory against the Indiana Pacers and a 3-2 series lead in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs. 

Before James hit the game winning three point buzzer beater, he blocked Victor Oladipo's potential go-ahead layup with three seconds left to give the Cavs an opportunity. This was after James lost the basketball the possession before to give the Pacers an opportunity to take the lead.

James finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and has had a career resurgence from the free throw line going 15 of 16 with his new-found forward leaning free throw technique.  

Kyle Korver also had a strong night in consecutive games as he had 19 points. 

The Pacers' Domantas Sabonis had 22 points including a 4-0 run to tie the game at 95 late in the game. Oladipo after a hot start to the postseason was only 2 of 15 in this game and 12 of 50 since Game 3 from the field. 

Game 6 of this series will be this Friday Night (Time: 8pm) in Indiana. Cavs will move on to round 2 of the postseason with a win or will have to return to Cleveland for Game 7. You can hear all Cavs Playoff games on Newsradio WTAM 1100.
