LeBron James continues to silence the critics who say he’s isn’t clutch.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star put his team up 3-0 in its second-round NBA playoff series against the Toronto Raptors with a buzzer-beater off the glass to win Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena on Saturday night.

The Raptors trailed most of the game but fought back in the fourth quarter, tying the score when rookie OG Anunoby hit a 3-pointer with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation.

Unfortunately for the Raptors, they left too much time for James to win the game.
