King Does It All. Gets Triple-Double. Keeps Cavs Alive. »

May 29, 2009 at 6:41 am | lebron-jamesnba-basketball

The Cavaliers are heading back to Florida, their wondrous season still alive. LeBron James wouldn’t let it end. James, showing off every dimension of his unstoppable game, had 37 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists, and Mo Williams, who boldly predicted the Cavs would come back and win this tight-as-can-be series, added 24 points in a 112-102 victory over the Orlando Magic in Game 5 on Thursday night. The Magic overcame a 22-point deficit but missed their first opportunity to close out the Cavaliers, who are trying to become just the ninth team since 1947 to rally and win a series after being down 3-1. James scored 21 points in the second half — 17 in the fourth quarter — and had a hand in Cleveland’s first 29 points in the final 12 minutes. The last player to post at least 37-14-12 in a playoff game was Oscar Robertson in 1963. LeBron James can score with anybody. He can leap to the rafters, shift the basket stanchion with his strength, move with the grace of a dancer. But what separates him from the other greats of this generation — Kobe, D-Wade, Melo — and any generation, is his court vision. His ability to facilitate like the finest point guards in the game and still put up 35, 40 points.

    Lebron actually got help this time so thats how they can win. Lebron can throw up 50 and the cavs can still lose cuz they dont help out. I hope they can play the same in the next game. GO CAVS!!!

  • w1tness_this

    Cavs looked like the team with the best recored last night… and with that said I still dont see them win’n on the road. They cant seem to put their foot on the throats of the magic. Too many blown leads. They cant stop the pick and roll for sh*t! Dwight Howard is not a 28pt 24 bds type of guy. He should’nt be getting more than 18pts a night maybe 24 bds? Foul his ass every time. Make them drive/ chase the magic off the 3pt line. Its not chess its checkers. Everyone keeps saying Bron needs help. Just play “D” just stop somebody, doesnt matter how many the Cavs score. It matters how many they give up!

    Lebron? “Have you seen my Championship Rings?”

    Cavs played a lot better down the stretch closing out on the perimeter and playing all around better D…they’re gonna have to adjust even more for game 6…im pretty sure they can win the series still and i think they will be a lot better for having played the magic. plus David Stern isnt going to let Lebron lose in game 6 and the refs will show us that.

    that WCF has turned out to be great as well, hope the Nugs can make a series out of it with a win tonight!

  • (witness this) is right

    the cavs just let them by to score open shots not agressive thats y they lose bad defense! better defense would lead to a ring!

  • mOe23

    Yeah! That’s what i’m talking about. That game is all about the “TEAM”. That game is all about the Cavs team against the Magic not LeBron vs the Magic. Bron got some scoring help from his teamates. Bron stay hungry, aggresive but stay humble. . .Go Cavs!

  • linlihao
