LeBron James suited up for Thursday’s Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers, which can only mean we’d be getting LeBron James highlights by the handful.

Take this fourth-quarter play for example.

Let’s be honest here: saying Ellis was “faked out” is probably the best way to phrase it. We can’t be sure that he merely got out of the way on purpose, but we also wouldn’t blame Ellis for maybe, kinda wanting no part in trying to defend James’ run to the basket.

The Pacers got off to a hot start to Thursday’s game, ending the first half with a 74-56 lead. They currently find themselves down 7 points with less than a minute to go.
