LeBron James led his team to a series-clinching 113-87 win over the Raptors on Friday, scoring 33 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.
It's his sixth consecutive Finals appearance to validate his claim as one of the best players of all time. LeBron had some shooting issues in the playoffs last season at just 41.7 percent from the field, but his extra help has him at 54.6 percent from the field this year. James' field goal percentage has also gone up in every round, so he's playing his best ball right now. The Finals will start on June 2 as LeBron tries to earn a championship for Cleveland.

LeBron James was named to the All-NBA First Team on Thursday.

Joining James on the All-NBA First Team will be Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, DeAndre Jordan and Kawhi Leonard. James will be making his 10th appearance on the All-NBA First Team, which is a feat that has only been accomplished by seven other players in NBA history. Anthony Davis did not make any of the All-NBA squads, which will end up costing him around $24 million.

LeBron James racked up 23 points, eight assists and six steals in just 32 minutes on Wednesday, as the Cavs rolled to a dominant 116-78 victory.

LeBron was on pace for a triple-double if it weren't a blowout, and he's now scored at least 20 points in 23 consecutive postseason games. Needless to say, he's been one of the steadiest DFS options in the playoffs this year. He's one win away from his sixth consecutive Finals appearance, and one free throw away from passing Kobe Bryant for second place in career postseason free throws (1,320), trailing only Michael Jordan (1,463).

LeBron James couldn't carry his team to victory during a 105-99 loss to the Raptors in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 29 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 46 minutes.

It looked like the Cavs were going to pull off a huge comeback with 11 consecutive makes in the fourth quarter. James' fourth quarter numbers alone were eight points, four rebounds, three assists and one steal, but he didn't score in the final five minutes. James' 46 minutes tonight were his most of these playoffs, but the Cavs were smoked in the two minutes without him with a minus-60.0 net rating. The fourth quarter was the story with the Cavs with LeBron playing the entire fourth while none of the other starters played more than 6.3 minutes. After destroying the Raptors in the Game 1 and 2, this series is all tied up at two.

Tyronn Lue said that he should have called more plays for LeBron James during Saturday's Game 3 loss to the Raptors.

"I think I should have called more plays to make [James] dominant," Lue said. "I should have put the ball in LeBron's hands a little bit more to let him create and let him draw double teams. So that was more on me." James only attempted 17 shots during the Game 3 loss, and his usage rate dipped to 17.5 through the fourth quarter, which is a trend that's unlikely to continue. Expect James to take on a more dominant role on offense for Monday's Game 4.

LeBron James scored 24 points during a 99-84 loss to the Raptors in Game 3 on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

He did not get much help tonight as the Cavs failed to score 100 points for the first time this postseason. James was fouled throughout the game, but one of the most talked about plays will how he fell down after Tristan Thompson hit him (video in link below). The Cavs also lost their first postseason game with LeBron, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.

LeBron James triple-doubled during a 108-89 win over the Raptors on Thursday, scoring 23 points with 11 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two turnovers.

It's his 15th playoff triple-double of his career and he also passed Shaquille O'Neal for fourth on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list. James continues to get to the rim at will and he's now 17-of-19 on his shots from within three feet. On the other hand, he's struggled at the line and is just 11-of-21 from there in these two games. The Cavs are 10-0 in this postseason and have won 17 straight playoff games against the Eastern Conference over the last two postseasons.
May 19 - 11:38 PM

LeBron James said he's not worried about the Cavs getting complacent after dominating their first nine games of the postseason.

"I don't think we have complacency on our minds right now," James said. "We have a goal, and our goal was not nine wins... And as the leader of this team, I'm going to continue to make sure that these guys understand what our goal is, and they know." The Cavs have made a mockery of the Eastern Conference, but James will consistently remind his teammates that a championship is the ultimate goal.
May 18 - 12:29 PM

LeBron James scored 24 points in Tuesday's 115-84 win over the Raptors in Game 1, shooting an efficient 11-of-13 from the field.

DeMarre Carroll was the primary defender on him tonight, but James couldn't be stopped and had his way on the offensive end. He added six boards, four assists, one block and two steals, and he didn't even touch the floor in the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score. The Cavs are still undefeated in the postseason and look like a serious force right now.
May 17 - 11:12 PM

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said that the burden on LeBron James in the playoffs has been minimal so far.

"LeBron is letting the game come to him," Lue said. "When he wants to be aggressive and he sees fit to be aggressive when the teams have a good run or whatever they may have, then he just takes over the game ... And with Kyrie [Irving] and Kevin [Love] playing at a high level, he can take a lot of mileage off of his body, reduce his [usage] rate and just kind of seeing and figuring out the flow of the game." James will make his sixth consecutive appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals and will take on the winner of Game 7 between the Raptors and the Heat on Sunday.

LeBron James scored 21 points on 10-of-23 shooting during Sunday's series-clinching Game 4 win over the Hawks, adding 10 boards, nine assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Hawks just weren’t able to find any answers for James, who regularly made it to the rack with ease and posted averages of 24.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 2.0 treys and 3.0 steals on 50.7 percent shooting through Round 2. This was the Cavs second consecutive postseason sweep of the Hawks, and LeBron will now make his sixth consecutive appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals.
May 8 - 6:34 PM

LeBron James helped the Cavs take a 3-0 lead with a 121-108 victory over the Hawks on Friday, scoring 24 points with 13 rebounds, eight assists, two steals, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

The Cavs are 7-0 in this postseason as the only team without a loss. The trio of James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love is now 11-0 all time and will look to go for their third series sweep in a row on Sunday -- Love was hurt in Game 4 in the first round last season. It feels like they might not lose a single game in the Eastern Conference the rest of the way.
May 6 - 10:30 PM

LeBron James racked up 27 points, five assists, four rebounds and three steals in just 28 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-15 shots including a 4-of-6 mark from downtown.

Tonight's game was all about 3-point shooting, but LeBron came in averaging a league-high 1.33 points per possession on post-ups during the playoffs (among qualifying players). It's an interesting wrinkle since the Hawks' defense has allowed the third-fewest points off post-ups (0.64 points per possession), behind only the Raptors and Clippers. As tonight's line reiterates, LBJ is simply too versatile to be held in check offensively during the course of a seven-game series.
May 4 - 10:41 PM

LeBron James scored 25 points during a 104-93 Game 1 win over the Hawks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, nine assists, five steals, one block, four turnovers and two 3-pointers.

The Cavs lost an 18-point lead, but they finished strong to earn the home win. James picked up his 120th playoff victory in this win, which passed Michael Jordan's 119. He was hit in the face in the fourth quarter and remained down for about 15 seconds, but he didn't miss time after that. The Cavs will look to go 6-0 in the postseason on Wednesday.
May 2 - 10:33 PM

LeBron James posted 22 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals on Sunday to help the Cavs sweep the Pistons in the first round.

James passed Scottie Pippen for career postseason rebounds tonight (1,593) and the victory gives him four consecutive first-round sweeps in the playoffs. The Cavs didn't shoot well tonight (41.9 percent), but they drained 13 threes and limited the self-inflicted damage with a mere five turnovers. They have plenty of time to rest before facing the winner of the Hawks vs. Celtics series.
