After the victory, James also became the all-time leader for wins in NBA playoffs. It was also his 162nd career victory in postseason. He finished with 36 points, five assists, four blocks and seven rebounds. Other than James, team-mate Anthony Davies and Ranjon Rando also put in good displays. Davis registered 26 points and 15 rebounds.

He has been included in the All-NBA First Team a record 12 times, and All-Defensive First Team five times. In total, he has also played in 16 All-Star Games, where he was the All-Star MVP thrice.
