LeBron James had 29 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists – all team highs – in the Miami Heat’s series-clinching win over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night. It was the 20th time in his pro career that James led his team outright in points, rebounds and assists in a playoff game. That’s by far the highest such total for any player in NBA history. In fact, the only other players who did that in at least 10 games are Larry Bird (13) and Tim Duncan (11). The end result succinctly summed up the difference between LeBron and Carmelo Anthony. While James was busy facilitating for teammates, Anthony put on the blinders and kept hunting for his own shot. They both put up big scoring numbers, but LeBron made sure he got his teammates involved in the process while eating up only 15 field goal attempts. King James was “forced” to wear his Miami Heat Home Player Exclusive shoes from Game Two.
