PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - Miami Heat star LeBron James led his team to a 98-96 victory in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at San Antonio on Sunday night, putting up statistics that haven't been seen since his teammate did it en route to Miami's first world championship.
James became the first player with 35 points and 10 rebounds in an NBA Finals road win since Dwyane Wade in 2006.
He's in elite company. Michael Jordan (1993), Shaquille O'Neal (2000, 2002) and Wade (2006) all captured Finals MVP honors after doing so.
They're the only others to have such a game in the last 30 seasons.
Miami tied the series with Sunday's victory. The Spurs now visit South Florida for Games 3 and 4 this week.
The Heat are 15-1 in the postseason when James has at least 30 points and 10 rebounds. Their lone loss was to the Boston Celtics in 2012.
