Another night, another LeBron James game-winner.

NBA: Playoffs-Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes, having LeBron James is enough. For the Cavs, having him

Here’s James’ game-winner from Saturday’s Game 3. With to timeout, and less than 10 seconds on the clock, here’s James going full-court and hitting a floater off the glass, and over OG Anunoby, for the win.

Here it is from another angle:

What James does here is unreal. Love sets a screen at halfcourt to help free him up to get open the left side of the floor. There, he goes up off his left foot, falling away and hitting the shot with one hand. Even with the high difficulty of shot, James makes it. And it comes at an angle that no Raptors defender even had a shot of stopping. The Cavs having no timeouts only raised the level of difficulty, too.

And with this shot, the Cavs are up 3-0 with a chance to sweep on Monday. Having LeBron is good, it seems.
