LeBron James’ stats haven’t just been great during the 2015 NBA Finals series, they’ve been historic. To say he is carrying the Cavaliers is an understatement after he claimed responsibility for 70 percent of the teams’ score via rebounds, assists and points. This means he has been involved in 200 of the Cavaliers’ 291 points through the first three games of the series.
The King’s 123 points scored through the first three games is also the most that have ever been scored in the first three games of any NBA Finals series.
He’s played at least 46 minutes and scored at least 39 points in all three NBA Finals games, amassing a jaw-dropping 123 points over the first three games.
Here’s a look at James’ key stats broken down by game:
Game 1 (108-100 loss): 44 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists in 46 minutes
Game 2 (95-93 overtime win): 39 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists in 50 minutes
