An injured LeBron James delivered one of the outstanding playoff performances last night

The King stay the King.

THE STATS SAY it all: 37 points, 18 rebounds, 13 assists, and a 12th career playoff triple-double.

And that’s before we even get to the stat that truly matters: the Cleveland Cavaliers lead the Atlanta Hawks 3-0 in the Eastern Conference finals and are just one win away from a place in the NBA Finals.

That’s LeBron for you.

Battling a host of niggles and injuries, he delivered one of the outstanding playoff performances as the Cavs beat the Hawks 114-111 in overtime on Sunday night.

How good was he in the grand scheme of things? It is the first time in NBA history that anyone has put up 37/18/13 in a playoff game.

Yeah, that good.
