When the final buzzer went off in OT and everybody in the building jumped up to their feet, an exhausted and hurting LeBron dropped to his knees and slapped the ground. It’s an image LeBron and basketball fans will probably remember for a while. An image that represented another epic performance from LeBron who started the game going 0 for 10 from the floor and ended with a monster triple double of 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists.
The Cavs are just 1 win away from beating the Hawks and LeBron is just 1 win away from making his 5th straight trip to the NBA Finals.
PLAYOFF TRIPLE DOUBLE LEADERS
The triple double, his 12th in the playoffs, puts him 2nd, only to Magic Johnson, on the all-time playoff triple double leaders list. In the 3rd quarter, LeBron also passed Karl Malone for 6th all-time on the Playoffs scoring list.
