Lebron's Game-winning Shot! Even series 1-1

With 1.0 second left in the game, Lebron ran towards the center of the court, received the ball, jumped up, releases the ball and evened the series 1-1. Damn, I thought that the Orlando Magic sealed the game with a jump shot by Hedo Turkoglu with 1 second left to take the lead, 95-93. Well, that's the NBA for you. It isn't over until the buzzer sounds. Whew?! That's Lebron James! Another buzzer-beater for the Cavaliers' star.

Lebron James led the Cleveland Cavaliers with 35 points, including the biggest three points in his carreer. The Orlando Magic was led by their two stars, Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu, with 23 and 21 points respectively.

The game was hard-fought for the Magic where they overcame a 23-point deficit to make the game very interesting and take the lead with 1 second left. But they celebrated too early and had their hopes drained by the big game-winning shot by Lebron. Well, it was a great shot which they can't do anything about it. They did well but it all boils down on the last play.

Kudos to both teams! God bless to all! Game 3 is on May 24, 2009 8:30pm ET.
