LeBron’s historical accomplishment was also achieved in historic fashion. He scored 39 points on fewer than 15 shots, which was the first time since Terry Porter achieved the feat in 1984.
As James tries to reach The NBA Finals for the seventh year in a row, he now trails only Michael Jordan for the top spot in total playoff points. James trails Jordan by just 210 points, which means he very likely will have the top spot by the end of the year.
Through six games in the 2017 playoffs, James is averaging an absurd 34.2 points per game while shooting 56.5 percent from the floor. At this rate, James just might pass Jordan by the time the Finals begin.
