The New NBA King
Lebron James became the highest scoring player in the NBA play-off after his three-pointer from the left in the third quarter of the game against Bolton Celtic.
King James as he fondly called by Basketball lovers has already won four NBA titles this year, finished the game with 35 points to set a new record of 5.995 points in just 212 NBA playoff games. But this pales in comparison with the record of Michael Jordan who clocked this mark with just 179 games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers also set another franchise record as they became the team to score most points during a quarter in the NBA playoffs with a record of 43 points within the first quarter in the game against Bolton Celtics.
All eyes will be on both Steph Curry and Lebron James as they fight for yet another Championship ring.
