More evidence why LeBron James is the best in NBA playoff history
The Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors are battling it out with the series up in the air and LeBron chasing the NBA Finals once again.
The Los Angeles Lakers vs the Golden State Warriors playoff series is still up for grabs, and it’s anyone’s guess which team advances. The matchup between these two teams has been a closely watched event, with both sets of players putting up strong performances in the games played so far. As the series progresses, it’s becoming clear that neither team has much of an advantage. Fans are eagerly waiting to see which team will come out on top and move on to the next round of the playoffs.
LeBron James and Anthony Davis are two of the standout names in the series and are striving to keep the Lakers as contenders for the Western Conference and have their supporters dreaming of another NBA Finals showdown. During Game 3 of the series in which the Lakers beat the Warriors 127-97, we watched a stunning performance from ‘King’ James, which brought him a notable playoff record.
LeBron scored 21 points, had eight assists and eight rebounds, and in that latter category he passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record as the fifth place in all-time in the playoffs.
LeBron adds to his NBA legacy
James now sits in the Top 5 for total points, rebounds and assists in NBA postseason history after having managed to pass the mark of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the bounce list. The last player to make the Top 5 in all 3 categories in postseason history was Wilt Chamberlain on April 15, 1975.
In these playoffs, the four-time MVP winner maintains an average of 22.1 points per game, 8.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists.
