Lebron vs Curry: How many times have they faced each other in the playoffs, and what is the record?
Steph Curry and LeBron James are engulfed in a postseason battle for a spot in the Western Conference final, but how many times have they faced each other in the playoffs?
Game one of the series between the Lakers and the Warriors went to the franchise from LA. LeBron and Anthony Davis dominated Steph Curry and company. The King had 22 points and 11 boards, while AD had 30 points and 23 rebounds.
This is not the first time that LeBron faced Steph Curry in the postseason. Their rivalry is not only for the championship ring but also for the title of GOAT. Both players have won four rings in their careers, and only one more title could set them apart. Game one of the series had the highest viewership of any NBA postseason game in history.
But how many times have they actually faced each other in the postseason?
It’s exciting to think that James and Curry will face off for the fifth time in the playoffs during their second-round matchup in 2023. It’s noteworthy that James made it to the Finals in consecutive seasons with the Cavaliers and facing the Warriors.
Curry has won 15 of the 22 games and three of the four series they have played against each other, which shows that James still has room for improvement. James really showed his skills during the 2021 Play-In Tournament! He led the Lakers to victory with a triple-double and a clutch 3-pointer over Curry.
