LeBron drops 48 in the Cav's game 5 double overtime win

I really don't know what to say right now, LeBron James just single handedly beat the Detroit Pistons in double overtime. James scored a career playoff high 48 points in the Cav's 109-107 victory Thursday night and now has the Cav's within one game of reaching the NBA Finals for the first time in team history.

James hit what proved to be the game-winning shot with 2.2 seconds remaining and Detroit's Chauncey Billups missed a shot in the paint that would've tied the game on the ensuing possession.

A huge portion of James' points came in the fourth quarter and the overtimes in which he scored 30 of his 48 points and just for a little reference on how shitty his teammates are...James scored 29 of the Cav's last 30 points and only two of his teammates scored in double figures, Zydrunas Ilgauskas with 16 points and Daniel "BOOBIES!!" Gibson with 11 points...only one problem, they both fouled out.

But even with this career defining game, you wouldn't know it by LeBron's post-game interview, man...he's so modest.

"Why should I be surprised? I was making a lot of great moves," James said. "They are definitely a great defensive team, but I was determined to attack."

The Cav's can lock up the series this Saturday night in Cleveland and if necessary, game seven is in Detroit and it would be on Monday night.

Side Note: The "Boobies" is a quote from one of my favorite sites, the Basketball Jones.
