What a superhuman effort by James but the small 3-point win margin says so much about the his supporting cast or about how competitive the East has gotten. Either way, it's not all over officially but looks like James will survive this Pacers' scare and move on.

Game 6 of this riveting series will be played on Friday night in Indiana with the Pacers playing to keep their Playoff hopes alive. As I, Yash Matange sign off, I request you to re-join Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Cavaliers' 2018 Playoff run.

Going by the history books, the Cavaliers are now favored to win this series but don't count this Pacers team yet. Despite being down by as many as 13 and a bad third quarter, they fought back and ended up losing only on the final play!
