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.
However, James has been a more efficient postseason scorer than Jordan, needing fewer shots (4,379 to 4,497), albeit while hitting a lower percentage (.482-.487) and taking more three-pointers (971-446).

James bounced back strong after a poor Game 3 performance, finishing with 34 points, five rebounds and six assists, while Kevin Love had 17 points, 17 boards and five assists.
The Cleveland regulars were 16 of 33 from behind the arc through three quarters - after the Cavs went 19 of 39 on treys in a 44-point win in Game 2.

He has scored 955 of those points against Boston, the most for any player against any team. No other player on the roster is capable of scoring 20 points per game.
James, Irving and Love took command from the opening tip-off on Thursday. But the Wine and Gold put the hammer down in the third quarter - extending their edge to as many as 35 before calling off the dogs.
Let the hype, and the waiting, begin: Game 1 isn't until June 1.
