More GOAT food: LeBron James passes Michael Jordan for most 30-point games in NBA postseason history

CLEVELAND – The debate for the GOAT will certainly continue.  

Yet, LeBron James passed Michael Jordan in a significant NBA postseason milestone Wednesday night during Game 3 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. James passed Jordan for the most 30-point games in NBA postseason history with 110 for his career.

James made a 3-pointer to set the NBA record near the two-minute mark of the fourth quarter. That gave him 31 points tonight.

James entered Wednesday night tied with Jordan with 109 career 30-point games in the postseason.

With another 40-point outing, the Cavaliers superstar forward will hold the NBA record for most 40-point performances in a single postseason.

James is currently tied with Jerry West, who had eight such games in 1965.

By just taking the floor tonight at Quicken Loans Arena, James passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for sole possession of the fourth-most playoff games played by any NBA player (237 games). Abdul-Jabbar was in attendance for Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena.

 

 

James passed Abdul-Jabbar for second place on the all-time NBA Final points list with his 29-point performance in Game 2. James had 1,327 playoff points entering Wednesday night. Only West (1,679 points) has more.
