LeBron James has played more games in the playoffs than anyone, with a record of 6,923 games.
But his most memorable game in the Western Conference Finals came in the 2017 Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs.
“It was the greatest moment of my life,” James said in his acceptance speech, noting the time the two of them spent together in the locker room.
The Cavs lost Game 6 to the Spurs, but James still led the Cavs to the title.
James averaged 25.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per game and was named MVP, becoming the first player in NBA history to win both MVP awards in a single season.
With James playing in a playoff series, his record-setting season could be eclipsed by that of Kevin Durant.
In 2017-18, Durant averaged 28.7 per game, including a career-high 22.7 against the Spurs in Game 6.
While Durant’s game has gotten more attention during the playoffs, James still leads the league in scoring.
During Game 1 against the Rockets, James scored 37 points and James Harden added 27.
James has been the most consistent and prolific scorer during the regular season.
In all, he has averaged 26.3 points per game during the postseason, good for third in the league behind Durant and Steph Curry.
The Cavs have averaged 24.8 points per contest, good enough for second in the NBA.
He is the only player to average at least 24.7 a game during all 82 games during the season.
James has averaged more points per possession in the postseason than any other player in the Eastern Conference, with an average of 24.9 points per 100 possessions.
A year after winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award, James has surpassed those expectations this postseason.
It has been a tough season for James and the Cavs, but he has continued to be a force to be reckoned with and has emerged as the best player in basketball.
James is averaging 26.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per contest this postseason, more than any player in all of NBA history, according to NBA.com.
James is the second-leading scorer in the entire NBA with 19.8 ppg, with Durant having a season-high 23.5 ppg.
James and Durant are also averaging a combined 10.5 steals per game.
Kevin Durant, who is averaging 27.4 ppg this postseason for the Thunder, led the league with 20 steals per contest in 2017-19.
The Thunder are averaging just 5.7 turnovers per game this postseason and have lost 10 of their last 11 games.
Durant and James have had the best playoff performances of any player to play in the series, but Durant has also been the MVP of the series and is the most productive player in team history.
In Game 5 against the Heat, James led the Thunder with 22 points, but the Cavs led by 15 points in the second half.
Durant scored 30 points in that game, the most in a Finals game since LeBron James scored 27 points in Game 3 against the Celtics in 2004.
James leads the NBA in scoring in Game 5, but is just two assists behind Durant for the most assists in the Finals this postseason with 20.
Durant leads the Cavs with 14 assists in Game 4, but has scored just two in the final five minutes of the game.
Durant has scored 14 points in his last two games in Cleveland.
