LeBron James now 2nd all-time in playoffs, Finals assists

Passing by Jazz legend John Stockton, James trails only Magic Johnson (2,346)

With his second assist in Sunday’s Game 3 of The Finals, the 1,840th of his NBA playoff career, LeBron James moved into second place on the league’s all-time postseason leaderboard.

Holding the ball on the left wing, looking for an opening, he spotted Dwight Howard making a backdoor cut and delivered a clean alley-oop.

James passed Jazz legend John Stockton, and now trails only Lakers great Magic Johnson, whose total towers above the field at 2,346. If James were to maintain his current playoff average (7.2 apg), he’d require another 70 games to make up the 506-assist differential.

Later in the game, LeBron passed Bob Cousy with his 401st assist in The Finals. Johnson also tops that list, at a staggering 584.
