Another National Basketball Association (NBA) match, and another LeBron James magic on display. LeBron James scored a brilliant basket for his side against Minnesota Timberwolves in the dying moments of the match, to lead his team Cleveland Cavaliers to victory on February 7, Wednesday. The nail-biting match went into the Extra time with both sides tied on 138 points; where James hit a buzzer-beating shot to emerge victoriously.


Snapping their losing streak, Cleveland Cavaliers would be hoping that this victory is a turnaround that they have been looking for. It was an important victory for both Lebron James and Cavaliers as they ended their two-match losing streak.

Watch LeBron James make the best two plays of the match, against Minnesota Timberwolves, in its ending moments:

It was a delight to watch when Lebron James blocked Jimmy Butler attempt to score the winner and then went on to score the winning basket. Making his first and (perhaps) the last block of the game, James first stopped Butler’s attempt and then scored a jump shot over him during the waning seconds of the match.

Watch LeBron James discuss his match-winning shot, against Minnesota Timberwolves:

The fade-away buzzer-beating shot can be easily described as the best shot of his season. LeBron James has been involved in a lot of such nerve-tickling moments over the years. One can easily recall his 3-pointer in the last-second-finish, against Washington Wizards; it was one of the most stunning endings in NBA’s season last year. With this win over the Timberwolves, the Cavaliers camp would be looking to resurrect their otherwise falling campaign this season.
