After receiving a lot of criticism after his first two games in the 2020 NBA playoffs, LeBron James responded in great fashion on Saturday night, going off against the Portland Trail Blazers, leading the Lakers to a 116-108 victory to take the 2-1 lead. With this victory, LeBron surpasses San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan on the all-time career playoff wins list.

If you had doubts about this man, he keeps making history in the league.

During the postgame interview, Bron discussed this topic, saying he feels so proud to be linked with Duncan, one of the greatest players of all time.

“I had my battles with him... Basically, he lived in the postseason. That was his address. For me to be linked with the great Big Fundamental, it means a lot.”

Bron reached his 158th playoffs victory on Saturday night, but that's not it. The King also surpassed Klay Thompson on the all-time playoff 3-pointers made list with 375. He is now 10 3-pointers away from Ray Allen, who sits on the 2nd position. Moreover, he needs three more wins in the postseason to tie former Laker Derek Fisher, who racked up 161 victories throughout his career.

LeBron wants to win the 2020 NBA championship and it looks like he finally activated his playoffs mode after Game 3. He's a man on a mission and as we all witnessed on Saturday night, once he starts the engine, there is no stopping.
