Continuing to show why he's widely regarded as the NBA's best player, LeBron James has led the Cleveland Cavaliers to an improbable 2-1 NBA Finals lead over the Golden State Warriors. This following last night's scrappy 96-91 home victory.

Once again, James scored 40 points, adding 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks. The scoring, rebounding and assist numbers are also his approxmiate averages for the SERIES.

James is doing everything he can to bring a title to Cleveland, including running through what's left of his stash of Nike sneakers. He started Game 3 in a new white and black Nike LeBron 12 Elite PE, but made a mid-game switch to the "Witness" 12.

Game 4 is set for Thursday at The Q.
