LeBron passes Jordan for most 30-point playoff games in NBA history

  LeBron passes Jordan for most 30-point playoff games in NBA history LeBron James supporters can never have too much ammunition in the never-ending debate over who's the greatest NBA player of all time between The King and the legendary Michael Jordan. James notched his 110th career playoff game with 30 or more points on Wednesday night, dropping 33 on 28 shots in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 110-102 loss to the Golden State Warriors. He now holds the league record for the most postseason outings with at least 30 points, breaking the tie with Jordan.

The Hawks, playing in the first state semifinal softball game in program history, saw their magical playoff run end with a 6-0 loss to Tabb at the Moyer Sports Complex on Friday afternoon.

Michael Linklater and Jermaine Bucknor scored five points each in the loss to the Netherlands, which was ranked No. 8 heading into the event. Steve Sir and Michael Lieffers added three points apiece for Canada.

The Canadians are hoping their first World Cup appearance is a stepping stone to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where 3-on-3 basketball will make its Olympic debut. Only eight teams will qualify for each of the men's and women's tournaments at the Olympics.

Canada does not have an entry in the women's 3-on-3 World Cup, which is being played alongside the men's tournament in Manila.

The 3-on-3 game is designed to be a simpler, faster-paced version of traditional basketball. It's typically played outdoors on a half court with one basket. Teams are allowed one sub on the bench. The shot clock starts at 12 seconds (half as much time as NBA players get). Shots made from inside the arc, as well as free throws, are worth one point. Shots made from beyond the arc are worth two. When the defensive team gains possession of the ball, they have to take it out beyond the arc. Games last 10 minutes, or until a team reaches 21 points.

Serbia was trying to win its third consecutive men's World Cup. The Serbs have won the event three of the four times it has been held since it began in 2012.

  • Former Cav has wild LeBron free agency theory .
    There’s a fine line between genius and insanity, and that appears to be what Earl Boykins is toeing with his theory on LeBron James’ free agency. Appearing Wednesday on Altitude Sports’ “The Hastings & Browman Show,” the retired guard spoke on James’ potential destinations and gave a surprising contender for who he believes could be an option … the Denver Nuggets. “He’s gonna look at Denver,” said Boykins. “He’s gonna talk to [Nuggets president of basketball operations] Tim [Connelly], and he’s gonna say ‘If I sign here, what moves are you gonna make? What’s gonna be left if I decide to sign here?’ The Nuggets have the young pieces that LeBron wants around him. Boykins was then asked what percentage he would put Denver’s chances of landing The King at, to which he replied, “If they sign [Nikola] Jokic [to an extension], it goes up to 35, 40 percent.” Earlier in the segment, Boykins also stated for some reason James would “never, ever” play for the New York Knicks. In any case, Boykins, now 42, himself played in the league from 1998 to 2012, including as a Cleveland Cavalier for two of those seasons. He is also a native of Cleveland and was one of the area’s biggest high school basketball phenoms in the early part of the ’90s. However, Boykins may have some bias in hyping up the Nuggets here since he also played for them for four seasons (his longest of any team) and now coaches high school basketball in the Denver area.
