Together, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 82 points, scoring 41 apiece. They were a two-man wrecking crew that the Dubs simply didn't have an answer for, especially once LeBron's jumper heated up.
On top of becoming the first teammates in NBA history to score over 40 points each in a Finals game, their performances marked the sixth and seventh 40-point Finals games in the last decade.
Out of those seven, LeBron James has four of them, meaning he has more 40-point outings in the Finals than the rest of the NBA combined since 2006-07 (via Reddit user 2mchheightsinhouston).
It's not that surprising considering that LeBron has played in seven of the last 10 NBA Finals' and he's one of the best players in the world. So far, he's suited up for 38 games in the Finals in his career.
It's an impressive feat that speaks to James' consistent dominance; he might have to do it a couple more times if the Cavs are going to complete the unexpected comeback and beat the Warriors, though.
(Note: all four of LeBron's 40-point Finals games have come in the last two seasons; Games 1, 3, and 5 in 2015, and Game 5 in 2016).
