It seems even after scoring 41 points in last night’s Game 5 of the NBA finals, NBA superstar Lebron James just can’t catch a break!
After losing Game 4 last week on the Cavs home turf, naysayers wasn’t sure if the Cavs were going to make it through Game 5 without a closeout against the Warriors, whose home record is 39-2 in season and 11-1 in the playoffs. But with the help of team mate and point guard Kyrie Irving, who also scored 41 points in last night’s game, King James led his team to victory in a 15-point lead (112-97).
Still…spectators just can’t let the man live. With Draymond Green suspended for knocking the King in his own set of basketballs, some believed there was no one to guard James on the Golden State’s defensive end except GS shooting guard Andre Igoudala…but King James prevailed.
James continues to dominate the league with the highest points per game average in a potential closeout game with 32.4 ppg.
The NBA finals continues on Thursday with Game 6 at the Quickens Loans Arean in Cleveland. Will the Cavs tie it in Game 6 or will Golden State take it home? Let us know what you think below!
