LeBron James was in classic form in Wednesday's wild overtime thriller between the Timberwolves and Cavaliers. 

Tied 138-138 with just seconds left in overtime – and only a few seconds after blocking Jimmy Butler's shot at a game-winner – LeBron did this. 

LeBron finished with 37 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists while shooting 16-of-22 from the field. 

The Wolves were on fire all night, too. Minnesota set a season high with 19 made 3-pointers, two fewer than the Cavs, as they combined for an NBA record 40 made threes. 

Jimmy Butler finished with 35 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 30 to go along with 11 rebounds.
