LeBron James was locked in in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets. With his incredible play, James led the Lakers to the NBA Finals.

He recorded his fourth triple-double during the 2020 playoffs. With this stat line, James became the first Lakers player with at least four triple-doubles.

The last player to do that in Lakers’ uniform was the legendary Magic Johnson in the 1991 playoffs. The Lakers closed out the series in five games for the third time during the 2020 playoff run.
