Watch LeBron James hit dagger jumper to lift Cavaliers past Hawks

5 Comments

The Cleveland Cavaliers have earned their week off. With their close-out win to sweep the Atlanta Hawks out of the playoffs (again), the Cavaliers are off until next Sunday at the earliest before the Eastern Conference playoffs start (longer if the Miami/Toronto series goes to a seven games).

LeBron James helped secure that rest with some good defense and then hitting this dagger jumper to seal the Cavs victory. He’s matched up on Paul Millsap in isolation on the right wing, and LeBron just nails the shot over the Hawks’ best defender.

The all but ended the game and the series.
