LeBron James Joins Michael Jordan on List of Top 10 Playoff Performances Against Celtics (Videos)

LeBron James Joins Michael Jordan on List of Top 10 Playoff Performances Against Celtics (Videos)LeBron James was absolutely unconscious in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, scoring 45 points and grabbing 15 rebounds as the Heat staved off elimination and forced a Game 7.

The Celtics simply didn't have an answer for King James, who controlled the game from start to finish. It went a long way toward silencing James' critics, who were out in full effect after Boston took a 3-2 series lead in Game 5.

James' performance was so good, in fact, that it's immediately recognized as one of the best playoff performances of all time against the Celtics. That's saying something, since James joins the likes of Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins and Magic Johnson on the illustrious list.

The Heat will need James to put forth another lights out effort in Game 7 to move on to the NBA Finals. If he's able to and Miami advances, James' performance in Game 6 will seem even more amazing.
