LeBron James overtook Michael Jordan to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer in the postseason, during game five of the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals. 

James pulled off the feat when he canned a three-pointer at the 2:40 mark of the third period, to make it 103-71 against the Boston Celtics.

Coming into this game, James needed 28 points to break Jordan’s record. The legendary Chicago Bulls guard had 5,987 points in 179 postseason games. James exceeded MJ’s mark in 212 matches. 

The triple also meant that James moved past Manu Ginobili in three-pointers made in the postseason.
