LeBron James has done it again.
And the Toronto Raptors and their fans have had their hearts broken, again.
LeBron banked in a runner at the buzzer to beat the Raptors 105-103 on Saturday night in Cleveland. The victory gives the Cavaliers a commanding 3-0 lead in the second-round Eastern Conference series.
The Cavs had to go the length of the floor after OG Anunoby nailed a game-tying three with eight seconds left.
And Cleveland wisely just ran the ol’ “Give it to LeBron and get out of the way” play, which frequently works as it did here. Watch LeBron’s buzzer-beating, off-the glass runner:

This is such a soul-crushing loss for Toronto, and while they’ve had a great season and are arguably the better overall team on paper, it’s hard to see them having much of a chance to beat LeBron four straight times. This series is almost certainly over.
