LeBron tied the record in Game 2 and nearly broke it in Game 3, but he fell one assist short, with 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine dimes.
The 2017 playoffs have been kind to King James in terms of making history, as he shot to the top of another list during the Eastern Conference Finals.

After setting that mark, LeBron reflected on the importance of surpassing his childhood hero, per ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin: "I wear the number  because of Mike. I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, just because of what he was able to accomplish. When you're watching Michael Jordan, it's almost like a god. So I didn't think I could be Mike."
While LeBron has yet to reach Jordan's heights in terms of being a six-time champion, adding yet another playoff record to his resume moves him closer to the conversation.
James has appeared in a remarkable six straight NBA Finals, and based on the Cavs' construction, coupled with a lack of competition in the Eastern Conference, he could be back for many years to come.
If that is the case, LeBron will have a chance to add to the triple-double record he owns all by himself.
