LeBron James put on a show in Game 2 against the Toronto Raptors, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 128-110 victory by putting up 43 points and 14 assists. He was particularly dominant in the second half, when he scored or assisted on 45 of the Cavaliers' 67 points, nearly accounting for more points than the entire Raptors team (47).
It wasn't just fans who were impressed with James' record-setting fourth career 40-point, 10-assist postseason game. His NBA peers were left searching for words to describe another epic performance.

I know Lebron hit some crazy shots but the way he gets everyone involved and how he sets them up for good looks and looks for mismatches is amazing. He's bball IQ is out of this world— Nikola Vucevic (@NikolaVucevic) May 4, 2018
If Lebron hitting fadeaways like that.... nobody can guard him...💯💯💯🤦🏾♂️— DeMarre Carroll (@DeMarreCarroll1) May 4, 2018
Crazy how much distance he covers on the spin to get to the fadeaway https://t.co/2XL07mKQOg— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) May 4, 2018
Tough shots down the stretch by bro. Game 1 at home makes this one hurt that much more. Leading for the entire regulation. Always wondered how bron hits the highly degree of difficulty/contested fadeaways but struggles at the line when it's uncontested— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) May 4, 2018
Hahaha bro he is going innnnn— Baze (@24Bazemore) May 4, 2018
Ok, y'all gonna get tired of these tweets but #BBQChicken time!!!! The shots he's Making is ridiculous— Channing Frye (@Channing_Frye) May 4, 2018
Game 3 is set for Saturday in Cleveland (8:30 p.m. ET on ABC), and the NBA world will once again be watching to see what James can do for an encore.
