The Cleveland Cavaliers finished their win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday on a 22-12 run and LeBron James scored or assisted on all 22 of those points. According to Elias, that's the most points scored or assisted on for any player this season to close out a game. The last player with a larger streak to finish a game was Russell Westbrook with 28 on March 29, 2017 at Orlando in a game that included overtime. "I started the game 3-for-11, was missing some chippies, a couple shots went in and out, some floaters in the lane. That's just a byproduct of who I am," James said. "I don't need to score to be productive and to help win a game. I just stay with it. I was able to get to the free-throw line tonight. I was able to get some rebounds and teammates made some huge shots for me. That's a crazy stat, though. I didn't know that, that's for sure.” James finished with 30 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists for his 58th career triple-double.
