Victor Oladipo: Lebron's block was a goaltend

Adjust Comment Print

However, Oladipo thought his shot hit the backboard first, and goaltending should have been called.

Some things in life are just inevitable. You're having the best player in the world on your team. The pressure to stop him is oppressively conceptual: Should you take a slow step, guess the wrong move or lean the wrong way, LeBron is virtually guaranteed to capitalize. "It hit the backboard and he blocked it".

Oladipo struggled offensively once again, scoring 12 points and 12 rebounds. "It just sucks, honestly".

Earlier this year he became the first player in National Basketball Association history to compile 30,000 points, 8,000 rebounds, and 8,000 assists over his career during a game against Brooklyn Nets, which saw Cleveland steal a 129-123 victory.

"I just try to read the game", James said.

0 - After playing well in limited time in Game 4, Tristan Thompson was a DNP-Coach's Decision in Game 5.

Now the Cavaliers are going to IN for tomorrow night's Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead. If the Pacers lose Game 6, their season comes to an end. Yet as James closed in toward the rim, his handle got away from him-only so much that he had to strain to reach it, but enough as to disrupt his rhythm. "He really was able to impose his will". That could have allowed Cleveland to take the lead, or at least take more time off the clock, altering the dynamic for Indiana's possession, which began with 26 seconds remaining in the game. It really sucks."The Pacers didn't beg for the call immediately after the play".

How has UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd managed to keep her job?
On Wednesday Ms Rudd denied targets were used, when she faced MPs investigating the problems faced by the Windrush generation. Rudd said she had asked officials to provide her with a "full picture of performance measurement tools" used at all levels.

While Oladipo worked painstakingly to avoid Cleveland's pick-and-roll traps, James operated as if the defense were immaterial.

The recent play might help inspire James and the Cavs to a long postseason run.

LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers are involved in one heck of a battle with the Indiana Pacers in Round 1 of the play-offs and the two sides once again produced a stunning contest on Wednesday night. He delivered for the Cavs in the fourth quarter.

James had 20 points on 9-for-11 shooting in the first half, while his teammates had 29 on 10-for-30. "Send me down some rest and we'll get back out there on Friday". I think it was like we knew what we had to do.

"It's one game", James said. James shot 54.2 percent from the field overall, 36.7 percent from the three-point line, and 73.1 percent from the foul line.

The 33-year-old, of course, saved his best for last.

"We'll see what happens in Game 6", Oladipo said. "At the end of the day, we're trying to come out and compete at a high level".
