James surpasses Jordan as all-time playoff scoring leader

James surpasses Jordan as all-time playoff scoring leader”

The Cavaliers reached the NBA Finals once with Brown at the helm but were swept by the San Antonio Spurs.

Through his career, James has averaged 28 points, approximately seven assists and nine rebounds per game in the Playoffs, ranking among the league's all-time bests.

LeBron James passed Michael Jordan on Thursday night as the NBA's all-time playoff scoring leader, accomplishing the feat in a win over the Celtics. He quickly flashed one finger as he backpedaled down the court.

Michael Jordan was an owner when he finally met LeBron James in the playoffs.

"It's one of those things I have no control over, it is what it is", said Brown, filling in for the ailing Steve Kerr. "I don't think we over-exceeded anything".

"I don't have to score to make an impact on a game and that was my mindset when I started playing, if I'm not scoring how can I still make an impact on the game?" "Just to be a part of this is wonderful, so really just embracing that".

Overall, the NBA Finals is a breeding ground for low-scoring basketball.

Looking back at the biggest totals in NBA Finals history, there have been just 21 championship series games with a number of 200 or more points since 1991.

LeBron said on Tuesday that the Cavaliers would be better in Game 5, because they knew who the Celtics were without Isaiah Thomas after about 92 minutes of action.

Cleveland scored 75 points in the first half, 109 through three and 135 in all in the 135-102 blowout.

Absentee ballot, recount results trickle in across B.C. following tight election
Following the May 9 election, the riding count stood at 43 for the Liberals, 41 for the NDP and three for the Green Party. With the results in some ridings so tight, Andrew Watson with Elections BC explains what would trigger a by-election.

It never happened between Magic Johnson's Lakers and Larry Bird's Celtics. It was 18 at the half and 35 after three. When Irving spun out comically on a screen as he was chasing Avery Bradley, they might have seen the same scenario play out with Klay Thompson popping open instead. "As insane as it sounds, going into halftime, we had cut it to at least a manageable number".

That's a satisfying lasting impression to have left upon the defending National Basketball Association champions. The Celtics can't afford to sink big money into Thomas, Bradley and Smart. "It's too stressful, and I'm not stressed right now". "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west". "I didn't think it was a lack of effort at the beginning, but our offensive mistakes led to bad defense, and it just kind of snowballed on us". Cleveland not only won all three games in Boston, but they didn't trail for even a second and compiled a +90 point differential. "They just stayed resilient all year, got to the playoffs, and we really stepped our game up", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "It's cute.". The Cavaliers' 43 points in the first quarter made them the first playoff team since the 1990 Celtics with three 40-point quarters against the same team.

"We came a long way this year", Celtics forward Al Horford said following the season ending defeat. "Individually, there's room for improvement on everybody".

The individual games are not that much different than what we usually get.

As it is, the closest active players to him - Tony Parker (4,012), Dwyane Wade (3,871), Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) and Manu Ginobili (3,009) - are all nearing the end of their careers, and they aren't all that close to begin with.
