Another night, another incredible milestone for LeBron James. During Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals between his Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, LeBron moved past Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for first place on the all-time postseason field goals list.
LeBron set the milestone with a little over three minutes left in the second quarter, knocking down one of the most wide-open jumpers he has probably ever seen.
The Celtics tried to execute a switch but there was some miscommunication, which left LeBron all alone in the corner. He calmly knocked down the open shot to give himself 20 points on the night.
In NBA Playoff History, LeBron James now ranks...— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) May 22, 2018
1st in points
1st in field goals made
1st in steals
1st in free throws made
1st in minutes
2nd in 3-pointers made
3rd in assists
It was field goal No. 2,357 for LeBron in the playoffs alone, which of course is far more than some players will ever make in their career. And with LeBron still playing at a crazy-high level, he should have no trouble building up a healthy lead in this statistical category.
