Playoff LeBron is back.
The Los Angeles Lakers star had a massive performance in Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. LeBron helped his team earn a Game 3 win, beating the Blazers, 116-108, to go up 2-1 in the first round series.
James had 38 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists on way to the big Game 3 win. The Lakers star was feeling himself late in the victory, too.
A photo of 'Playoff LeBron' reacting to his team's Game 3 win is going viral on social media.
That's not a guy you want to have to face when it matters most.
James said postgame that he felt his offense pace was at its best on Saturday.
"I just think my offensive pace tonight," James highlighted following the win, "at times I was fast, slow, medium-paced. It was like a stick shift. Sometimes I was in gear 1, sometimes I was in gear 6. Being able to read and react, depending on whether I had the cruise on or was in a residential area or the highway or I was on the straightaway. Being able to have a car that can go in different speeds and zones, depending on what the traffic is, is very key."
Game 4 of the first round series is set for Monday at 9 p.m. E.T.
