He also created 21 field goals off of his passes. He also created a game-high 13 open field goal attempts, according to ESPN’s Stats & Information.

James defended on a game-high 19 field goal attempts. Of those shots, the Celtics made just six baskets when he was the primary defender.

He has also won six straight Game 7’s in his career. He is now 6-2 in Game 7’s in his career. He’ll be the sixth player in NBA history, who will be playing in their eighth straight NBA Finals, joining five players from the 1950-1960s Celtics teams.
