LeBron has never had a 50 point playoff game?
 
is that right??

i just saw stats mentioned in another thread that said LeBron has never scored 50 points or more in a playoff game, while players like Vince Carter, Ray Allen and Sleepy Floyd have... is that true?

Usually when LeBron is having a crazy game or is on fire, his team is up 20+ in the third and he sits the 4th.

50 point playoff games aren't that common. Kobe was the last one to drop 50 in a playoff game back in 2006.

Elgin Baylor and Michael Jordan still have the high of 61 and 63.

Yeah, I already knew this. He's been close at times though...

Or his team loses on the last shot or by a couple of points or big margin...

LeBron's team record in 40+ point games is 7-4.

Yup.

Only 20 players in NBA history have pulled off a 50+ point game in the playoffs and only 4 players have done it multiple times (Jordan - 8, Wilt - 4, Iverson - 3, West - 2).

Lebron takes his foot off the gas. There are games where he could have come close or had it but he usually just starts passing.

Do you have the list of player, would like to see it?

Off the top of my head, I know Vince Carter, Charles Barkley and Sam Jones have one.

Someone doesn't belong, Sleepy must have been hot that game.

And I stand corrected, Ray Allen was the last to drop 50+ (51) I that classic Bulls series from 2009.

you say that like vince carter and ray allen weren't capable scorers in their primes...prime v.c was a beast and although ray in his game was pretty much exiting his prime shooters when they get hot can fill it up

45/15/5 under huge pressure facing elimination in Boston Garden wasn't enough for the haters? Foot off the gas up by 20 as well.
