Game 6 is on Friday, April 26th, at 8 pm. A closer in the mold of Mariano Rivera or Tiger Woods.
The game, the series, the season and perhaps Cleveland's future were in jeopardy. However, something happened after that and#LeBron James went into Beast Mode. James hit the game-winner on the next possession.
LeBron James' shooting percentage, or 14 of 24 for a 44-point effort against IN in Game 5.
"As a kid, you always have those 3, 2, 1 moments", James said. And on top of everything else, the Cavs face an uphill battle to make the Finals again from the #4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
After the game, Oladipo spoke about that play and he didn't mince words, telling reporters, "it was a goaltend".

The Pacers tried Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner, Lance Stephenson, Trevor Booker and Bojan Bogdanovic on James at times, but he was indefatigable. James has been nothing short of brilliant throughout this series.
But it did, and now the Pacers are on the brink of elimination.
The Cavs built huge first-half leads at IN in games 3 and 4 and blew them both. Here are three takeaways from the game that got them there.
The Indiana Pacers have the 5th-ranked defense in the National Basketball Association playoffs (sorted by defensive efficiency) and it's in part because they have great individual defenders and in part due to their coaching.
Victor Oladipo, the star in Game 1 with 32 points, has really struggled in the last three games - shooting just 24 percent from the field. The Pacers can point to plenty of other reasons they lost besides the referees.
"This series ain't over", Oladipo said. Each side has stolen a win on the other's home court, and each has toiled under the anemic pace of this series.
Don't get us wrong: There are plenty of things about which you can fret as a Cavs fan. He then added, "Of course I didn't think it was a goaltend". Obviously, it sucks, we want to win. "It's unfortunate. It really sucks that they missed that".
"As soon as it left his hand, it looked flawless", Cavs coach Ty Lue told reporters.
There's been injuries and drama galore. Boston certainly drafted well the last two years.
James also had 10 rebounds and eight assists. He delivered for the Cavs in the fourth quarter.
More troubling has been the Cavs' inability to put the Pacers away when they've had a chance - and there have been quite a few of those instances.
LeBron James did it again, this time possibly with his team's season and even his Cleveland career on the line.
"Felt like I even got grabbed on the way to the rim", said Oladipo, according to ESPN. The spacing Korver is providing is invaluable, given even on plays that he doesnt directly finish, IN defenders are always attempting to switch onto him, leaving someone else free to take the open shot, or IN LeBron's case, free to drive and finish IN his devastating manner.
