May 22, 2009 - LeBron James had just one second to try an incredible three-pointer and save Cleveland Cavaliers.
CLEVELAND (AP)—Michael Jordan no longer has the most famous buzzer-beater in Cleveland sports history.
The Shot has been topped.
LeBron James(notes) made one better.
James dropped a 3-pointer from the top of the key over Orlandos Hedo Turkoglu(notes) as the final horn sounded Friday night to give the Cavaliers, their season a heartbeat from major trouble, a 96-95 victory over the Magic that evened the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece.
From 23 feet—matching his jersey number and Jordans—James hit a shot that will go down as one of the defining moments in a career thats just hitting its stride.
That guy is not in the league any more, James said of Jordan. The other 23 is on the good side now.
