LeBron passes Pippen for playoff steals record

As LeBron James fought to keep the Cleveland Cavaliers alive in the NBA Playoffs, he also added to his legacy.

With a steal off Darren Collison in the second quarter of Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers, James became the all-time leader in that category with the 396th postseason steal of his 15-year career.

James passed former Chicago Bulls great Scottie Pippen, who finished his career with 395 steals in 208 playoff games.

Sunday's game was James' 224th playoff game.

James finished the game with four steals, giving him 399 for his playoff career, along with 45 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
