VIDEO: LeBron James’ Game 5 Triple-Double Performance


LeBron James has given us some historic individual performances in these NBA Finals, particularly in the first three games where the Cavaliers gained an early 2-1 edge. The Golden State Warriors have since won two straight, including last night’s 104-91 Game 5 win to earn a 3-2 series lead.

But LeBron was once again a special force in Game 5 with his 14th postseason triple-double and 6th in the NBA Finals. James finished with 40 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists in the loss.

LeBron is averaging over 36 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists in this series. He’s on the verge of being the first player to ever average 35/10/5 in a Finals, and he’s now the only player besides Jerry West in 1969 to score 40 in a triple-double game in the Finals.
