Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has been unbelievably hot during the postseason this year. The King made NBA Playoff history during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night.
LeBron went over the 30 point and 10 assist barriers during the game. It marked the 16th time in James’ postseason career where he topped each number, passing the great Michael Jordan on the all-time list. No player in NBA history has done that in as many playoff games.
Tonight is LeBron James' 16th career playoff game with 30+ points and 10+ assists.
That passes one Michael Jordan for the most in playoffs history per @EliasSports.

It also must be noted that the three players closest to him, Jordan, Jerry West, and Oscar Robertson, are all retired. James has at least four more playoff games in 2018 and who knows how many for the rest of his career? As such, the record setter will almost certainly not be LeBron’s last 30 point, 10 assist game.
Don’t expect this record to fall any time soon.
