Simply put: LeBron James was unstoppable, and led the Cavs to victory in the biggest game that they have ever played in. He scored 48 points, including the game winner that broke a 107-107 tie with 3 seconds to go to give Cleveland a 109-107 win. Actually, to put it into perspective, LeBron scored 29 of the Cavs last 30 points. He more or less won the game by himself. Until tonight, the farthest the Cavaliers have ever come to the finals was winning 2 game in the conference NBA finals, but that has now changed, as the Cavs now have an excellent chance to win the Eastern Conference as they are now up 3 games to 2. This simply an awesome game, despite the fact that the Cavs blew several chances to win it earlier in the game. They should have won in regulation, and in the first OT but missed free throws and bad possessions late in each of those periods allowed Detroit to tie it each time. But enough bitching, the Cavs won, and I am ecstatic. Game 6 will be in Cleveland on Saturday night.
In Tribe news, the Indians beat the Tigers 11-5 on the strength of several big innings. Hafner had 4 RBIs including a 2 run HR, Martinez also had a 2 run HR, and Sizemore had a 2run triple. Cleveland is now 33-19, and 3.d games ahead of Detroit for first place.
