Twitter reacts to LeBron's winning shot to beat Raptors in Game 3

Jazz heading home looking for 2-1 lead on the Rockets

"They can't really load, they can't double team because one shot can lose you the game if you give up a wide-open look, most likely you're not going to like the results of that".

CLEVELAND - Having already played nine games in 19 days to open up the 2018 playoffs, Cavaliers superstar LeBron James says that he won't allow himself to start thinking about a sweep of the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals in the hopes of securing some rest before the next round.

This was unlike any of his previous Playoff game-winning buzzer beaters.

Tip-off time for this one is set for 8:30 pm in Cleveland, with the Cavaliers leading the best-of-seven game series 2-0 and live on ABC and streaming on WatchESPN. DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry had 5 fouls each in Game 3. "I just want to be out there helping my team, way more than anything".

"I've been doing it since I was six, seven, eight or maybe even younger". Round 2 has been a different story so far however, as the team shot 32% from beyond the arc in Game 1 and 40% in Game 2.

Meanwhile, despite leading his team to a dominating Game 2 win, James, who became the first player in National Basketball Association history to score at least 40 points with 14 assists in a playoff game, remains grounded.

"It is very hard", James said, smiling. As the ball went through the rim a fraction before the buzzer blared...

During the opening round, the Cleveland Cavaliers showed their inept ability to wisely select a capable lineup. "Don't try it at home Jeff".

A year ago in a regular season game in Washington, trailing by three with 3.4 seconds left, James caught a full-court pass from Love, and had the awareness to take one dribble, step behind the 3-point line, and hit a fadeaway three to send the game into overtime.

"I think the blitz", Lue said of what worked so well.

James scored 16 of the Cavaliers' 26 points in the fourth quarter, refusing to let Toronto complete the comeback. That's why we wanted to get the ball out of his hands and make someone else beat us.

Despite being down 3-0, with a focused James in his path, a Cavs team seemingly peaking at the right time and a Raptors team falling apart at the worst possible time - Lowry remains as stubborn as ever - unwilling to accept defeat.

A gassed James called for a sub and was removed from the game with 4:04 left and the Cavs up 11, but Love took over at that crucial juncture. In his 15th season, with already one of the most impressive resumes in league history, James continues to add to his mythology.
