Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James reaches latest postseason milestones

The Cavaliers might be getting thrashed by the Pacers in Thursday’s Game 3, but that didn’t stop LeBron James from climbing up the career postseason points and rebounds lists. 

James passed Kobe Bryant for third in the former, leaving only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan with more. He also passed Wes Unseld for seventh in the latter. 

UPDATE: James also passed Bryant for fourth in career postseason 3-pointers as the Cavaliers have cut what had been a 26-point deficit to seven entering the fourth quarter.
