LeBron Becomes First to Average Triple-Double in Finals

on

In the same tunnel where they celebrated a championship one year ago, Kyrie Irving waited for LeBron James to come off the court and the two Cleveland Cavaliers stars embraced.

James wrapped his arm around Irving and simply said: “We’ll be back, me and you. We’ll be back.”

James had just become the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals after scoring 41 points with 13 rebounds and eight assists in Game 5 on Monday night. James ended the series averaging 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists but took the fifth Finals loss of his career as the Golden State Warriors clinched the title with a 129-120 victory.
