Take a look at some of the Twitter Reaction from Game 5:
Skip Bayless from ESPN First Take, tweets:
LeBron FINALLY got serious. This series is basically OVER, as it should’ve been tonight.

I was thinking the same exact thing. I had a feeling King James was prepared to bury the Pacers tonight, especially after uncharacteristically fouling out in the previous game. I predicted this series would be over in five games. Forget the predictions, Miami Heat will advance to the NBA Finals. Period.
Alex Kennedy tweeted about Udonis Haslem’s stellar performance and check out this featured article on how Haslem Helped Win Game 5 by Jae Bradley.
After averaging just 3.8 points this season, Udonis Haslem has erupted twice this series with 17 points in Game 3 and 16 points in Game 5.

Remember Gary Washburn? The National NBA Writer from the Boston Globe who was the only person NOT to vote LeBron James first-place for the Most Valuable Player Award this year. Shame on him. But this tweet was quite funny (only player to wear Converse, lol):
Gotta love Udonis Haslem because he works feverishly on that baseline jumper and may be the lone remaining NBA player to wear Converse

Deadspin reports LeBron is not human. Yes indeed, on a routine playoff night, LeBron puts up 30 points on 50% shooting with eight rebounds and six assists.
Bosh and Wade struggle, but LeBron isn’t human, so the Heat still win. deadsp.in/ANPfVCV

James and the Miami Native, Haslem do the heavy lifting today and combine for 46 points on 21-of-35 (60%) shooting.

LeBron and Co. have learned how to finish games now. The 4th quarter is no longer our achilles heel.
Pacers actually beat the Heat 66-60, if only they’re able to convince David Stern that the 3rd quarter didn’t happen. #36Minutes

Paying respect to the King, ESPN’s Michael Wilbon:
LeBron’s too good…He’s just too skilled, his judgment now is so sound, he’s calm, not afraid to roast his teammates if needed…2 good…
