Boston - King James has another throne.
LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan for the top spot on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list, scoring 35 points against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night to reach 5 995 career points.
Jordan scored 5 987 in his postseason career in 179 games from 1985-2003.
James played in his 212th career postseason game on Thursday night, when the Cavaliers beat the Celtics 135-102 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to advance to the NBA Finals.
The Cavaliers star came into the game needing 28 points for the record and hit a 3-pointer in the third quarter against the Celtics to break the long standing record.
The Cavs will now most likely face the Steph Curry led Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals in a rematch of last year's rematch in what was one of the all-time classic finals series.
