SEE IT: LeBron James hits game-winning three at the buzzer

LeBron James continues to remind everyone why he’s the King.

LeBron drilled a game-winning three as time expired to lift the Cavs to a 98-95 win over the Pacers Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena. Cleveland now leads the series 3-2.

With the game tied at 95-95, LeBron caught the inbounds pass with 3.0 seconds remaining. He then quickly dribbled to the top of the key before nailing a three-pointer over the hands of Pacers forward Thaddeus Young as the clock hit zero.

Take heed of LeBron’s advice and get off Allie LaForce’s back

LeBron’s buzzer-beater wasn’t the only game-changing highlight he had. On the previous Pacers possession, Victor Oladipo drove to the lane for a potential game-winning layup with 3.3 seconds remaining. LeBron, however, leaped up and blocked Oladipo’s shot off the backboard, setting up his eventual buzzer-beating three-pointer.
