LeBron James answered all the critics with one of the greatest performances in NBA Playoff history.
LeBron James used one of the most spectacular performances in playoff history to lift the Cleveland Cavaliers to the verge of their greatest season.
James’ career playoff-high 48 points — including 29 of his team’s final 30 — carried the Cavaliers to within a win of the NBA finals for the first time in franchise history with a 109-107 double-overtime victory over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night.
James made a go-ahead layup with 2.2 seconds left and Detroit’s Chauncey Billups missed a shot in the lane on the ensuing possession.
LeBron was coasting in the first half of the season and took some heat, and he’s always taking crap from critics trying to put down his game. Thursday night he showed that he is one of the great ones.
