LeBron James and Kevin Durant have a huge NBA Finals rematch

LeBron James is set to square off against Kevin Durant in the Finals for the fifth time in the NBA Finals.

James and Durant have met once before, in the 2014 Finals.

In that matchup, James scored 27 points in the final 2:40 to beat Durant in six games to win the championship.

But James and Durant didn’t meet in the series this time, as Durant was injured for the series finale.

The Thunder won the next two meetings, but Durant wasn’t available.

The Thunder defeated the Warriors in seven games to claim the championship in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Finals ended in a blowout, with the Warriors winning in seven.

James scored a career-high 41 points in Game 4 of the Finals, but it was his fifth playoff game of the season.

The Warriors defeated James in five games to advance to the NBA Championship Series.

James is averaging 27.8 points in his last four postseason games.
