Miami Heat forward LeBron James had 32 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers on Monday night, marking the 74th playoff game in which he has reached at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists.

With the feat, James passed Hall of Famer Michael Jordan for the most such games in NBA playoff history, per the Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN.com).

James accomplished the feat in just 151 games, 28 fewer than the 179 career postseason appearances that Jordan logged.

Not only did James pass Jordan in 25-5-5 games, but he also tied Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record of 31 playoff games with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. The 31 games with at least 30-10-5 are also the most in NBA history.

James, who is averaging 28.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists in this year's playoffs, will look to close out the series in Game 5 on Wednesday night in Indiana. If the Heat can advance past the Pacers, they will reach the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season, a feat that was last accomplished by the Boston Celtics from 1984-1987.

Additionally, the Heat are trying to become the first team to win three consecutive championships since the Los Angeles Lakers did in 2000-2002.
