The first round of the 2006 NBA Playoffs marked LeBron James' postseason debut—and and it was an impressive one at that.
The series was back and forth in the early stages, as the two teams split the first four games, heading into Game 5 tied at 2-2.
In a pivotal Game 5, the Wizards, powered by the trio of Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler, made a furious late-game comeback to force overtime.
However, LeBron converted on a game-winning layup with less than a second remaining, swinging the series in the Cavs' favor 3-2.
Game 6 was another hotly-contested matchup, as the Wizards blew an early lead and needed a deep, buzzer-beating three from Arenas to force overtime once again.
This OT was also close, but as time wound down, it certainly appeared as if Washington was going to take the game.
With 15.1 seconds remaining and his team up two, Arenas walked up to the line for a pair of free throws.
Yet before attempting his first one, LeBron approached and whispered to him: "If you miss both of these free throws, the game is over."
So what happened then?
Arenas clanked both attempts, LeBron took the ball down the court, penetrated into the lane and passed to an open Damon Jones, who hit the game-winning three.
In all, the series saw James notch a triple-double, hit two game-winning shots, dish out a series-winning assist and win the first of what was to be many future playoff series.
