What is Lebron James’ record in elimination games in the NBA playoffs?
The Golden State Warriors will host the Los Angeles Lakers for game 5 of the playoff series this Wednesday at Chase Center.
The Lakers vs Warriors playoff matchup is reminiscent of one of the best NBA rivalries of all time: LeBron James vs Steph Curry. These two players have given fans some of the best games in the history of the NBA. Experts have considered the 15/16 finals the best in the sport’s history after LeBron James and the Cavaliers returned from a 3-1 finals series and won it all.
James and Curry have faced each other 5 times in the playoffs. Curry won 15 of the 22 games and three of the four series they played against each other. This would indicate that Steph is the favorite to win, and you would be right. Over their careers, LeBron James has reached the playoffs 16 times, while Steph Curry has been to the postseason 9 times.
What is LeBron James’s elimination record?
The King has a 17-0 winning record when 3-1. This record defines LeBron as the ultimate clutch. It would be crazy to think that this series is going to go any way that is not his way.
Not even Michael Jordan can say that he had such an impressive record.
