Brother Thick Eyebrows slashed the super double-double data of 31 points, 17 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocked shots. At the same time, the rebound data of Brother Thick Eyebrows was the best in the audience. In addition, as the stealing king and blocking king of this campaign, Brother Thick Eyebrows is ubiquitous on the defensive end and full of deterrence. Brother Thick Eyebrows dominated the offensive and defensive ends of the restricted area.
Russell scored 17 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal. In the case of scoring the third highest score of the team, Russell shared the scoring responsibility of James and Brother Thick Eyebrows. In addition, Russell is the assistant king of the whole team. Under Russell’s series connection, Zijin Army achieved five people to score in double figures and made a smooth attack. In this campaign, Russell’s positive and negative values are still the highest +13 in the audience.
James, Brother Thick Eyebrows and Russell jointly contributed 73 points, 30 rebounds, 14 assists, 4 steals and 4 blocks in this campaign, which is the key for Zijin Corps to defeat the strong enemy.
Lakers superstar LeBron James also set two records in this campaign. First, James is the only player in NBA history who has played 25+5+5 in a single game at least 100 times in the playoffs. James has done it 145 times.
Second, statistics show that James ranked first in the history of 20+ playoff games with 240 games.
James’s above two records are the highest in history. I have to say that James, a 38-year-old veteran, still has a strong fighting power, which is also an important reason why Zijin Corps is regarded as a favorite to win the championship.
Anthony Davis, the insider giant of the Lakers, also made two miracles in this campaign. First, Brother Thick Eyebrows became the first Lakers player with at least 15 hats in three playoff games since O ‘Neill in 2004.
Second, Brother Thick Eyebrows is the first player to score at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and 3 blocks in the playoffs since Pau Gasol (36 points, 16 rebounds and 3 hats) in 2008.
Brother Thick Eyebrows can compete with two famous NBA players, which proves his strength. Anthony Davis, who made two miracles, is James’ best partner for the championship.
