LeBron James gets triple-double in Game 1 of NBA Finals

15 Comments

LeBron James entered the fourth quarter of Game 1 of the NBA Finals one assist shy of a triple-double, and he got it about five minutes into the period.

LeBron – who now has 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in this game – now has the last three triple-doubles in the NBA Finals, one in each of the last three years. He also has half of the triple-doubles in this year’s playoffs, with his two matching the one each from Pau Gasol and Paul George.

The only other active players with triple-doubles in the NBA Finals are Rajon Rondo (2010) and Tim Duncan (2003).
