Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James produced a game-winning performance on Tuesday night as he helped his team to a 118-114 win over the Utah Jazz.
James tied a season-high 31 points as he guided the Cavs to their seventh straight win, and he led a stunning comeback as his team trailed 95-86 midway through the fourth quarter.
As he has done on so many occasions, the two-time NBA champion turned things around to seal the victory over a young Jazz team that would have taken a lot from the experience.
However, as seen in the clip above, Rudy Gobert would not have enjoyed that specific play as James put him on a poster before the Frenchman’s night got even worse as he twisted his left ankle in the fourth and left the game.
Nevertheless, Utah have the fourth-youngest roster in the league, and coach Quin Snyder would have taken plenty of positives away from the loss. The franchise is undoubtedly looking to build on last season and attempt to establish themselves in the running for one of the last playoff spots in the Western Conference.
As for Cleveland, they haven’t looked back since losing their opener against the Chicago Bulls, and they now top the Eastern Conference with a 7-1 record. LeBron and Co. will take on the New York Knicks on Friday, while the Jazz are back in action on Thursday against the Miami Heat.
