Overruling his head coach’s final drawn-up play in Sunday’s Game 4, LeBron James took things into his own hands and nailed the game-winning buzzer-beater to give the Cleveland Cavaliers a 86-84 win over the Chicago Bulls to tie the Eastern Conference semifinal series 2-2.
James finished with 30 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists as the series moves back to Cleveland for Game 5 on Tuesday.
The Bulls had won Game 3 on a Derrick Rose last-second 3-pointer to grab a 2-1 series lead. The Cavs responded 2 days later.
Tip time is scheduled for 7 p.m. Eastern on TNT. Marv Albert (play-by-play), Chris Webber (analysis) and Rachel Nichols (reporting) are on the call.
