Band Of One

With the curtain about to fall on their season, the Cavs went back to the tried and true: Give the ball to LeBron. Once again the King delivered.

He passed when it was time to pass. He shot when it was time to shoot. He drove the lane when it was time to drive the lane. He used each teammate perfectly, and, for once, was able to bust a game open so Orlando couldn’t steal it away late.

There was no hesitation, no second thought, no timeout to get everyone in order. It was a straight dose of LeBron’s brilliance, the conductor choosing the tune and the band trying to keep up.

His astounding line – 37 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists – doesn’t begin to describe it.

The Cavaliers are heading back to Florida, their wondrous season still alive.
