Watch: LeBron James Hits Winning Three at the Buzzer to Clinch Game 5 Vs Indiana

Some things in life are just inevitable. Death, taxes and LeBron James landing a buzzer-beater.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers locked at 95-95 on Wednesday night, James received an inbound pass, took two dribbles and launched a three-pointer over Thaddeus Young. The outcome was as inevitable as that of any clutch shot James has attempted throughout his stellar career and sent the Cleveland crowd berserk.

LeBron's buzzer-beater capped an incredible performance, which saw the three-time NBA champion finish with 44 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Most importantly, before scoring the winner, James had blocked Victor Oladipo's attempted lay-up, which could have won the game for Indiana.

The 98-95 win put the Cavs 3-2 up against the Pacers, the first time the 2016 NBA champion have led the series, having gone down 1-0 and 2-1. They can now advance to the next round if they win in Indianapolis on Friday.

"As a kid, you always have those 'three-two-one' moments, and being able to have one of those moments, that's what it kind of felt like," James said after the game, as reported by ESPN.

"Felt like I was a kid all over again. Just playing basketball at my house, makeshift hoops and my socks as a basketball. Making the [swish] noise."
