NBA

LeBron James has some history on the line today. With a win he will pass Tim Duncan for most playoff sweeps in a career all-time with 10. He will also pass Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper and James Worthy for most consecutive first round playoff wins with 21 (since 1984). Also, he's averaging 32.7 points, 10.7 assists and 9.7 rebounds in the playoffs against IND thus far, putting him in range to join Johnson and Jason Kidd as the only players in the last 30 years to average a triple-double in a playoff series.
