The Cleveland Cavaliers outfought the Chicago Bulls to pull off a gritty 86-84 victory to even the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal series at 2-2. The series now heads back to Cleveland.
In the final seconds of Game 4 a sequence of unfortunate events almost cost the Cavs the game.
This is yet another example of LeBron James showing that he is really the one in charge of the team while Blatt continues to make mistakes.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James says head coach David Blatt wanted him to inbound the ball on the final play of Sunday’s Game 4, but he overruled the coach. Instead, James hit a game-winning jumper as time expired to give the Cavaliers an 86-84 series-tying win.
It was an embarrassing final minute for Blatt, who insists on being recognized for his decades of international experience. But Blatt looked and sounded every bit a first-year coach at the end of Sunday’s game.
LeBron’s brilliant shot came in spite of his coach.
