LeBron James has played a ton of games in the NBA Playoffs. In fact, he is the league’s all-time leader in games played in the postseason,
thanks in large part to his incredible run of consecutive appearances in the Finals — and also his early start in the league.
With all those games under his belt, you would think that you’ve seen it all from LeBron James in the postseason.
But here’s something new: for the first time ever in his career in the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar did not attempt a single shot from the field
when he decided not to pull the trigger at all in the first quarter of Saturday night’s home game against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors.
Instead, LeBron James let D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Davis carry most of the scoring duties in the opening period.
Russell, in particular, came out of the gate like a house on fire and scored all of the Lakers' first 11 points in the contest (and 13 of their first 17).
LeBron James entered Game 3 of the Warriors series to lead the Lakers to the playoffs at 22.3 points per game.
