LeBron has never had 4 fouls in the first half in his career. Only had 3 playoff games with 4 fouls over last two years.

The Cleveland Cavaliers trailed by 10 at the time but managed to fall no further behind with James on the bench, heading into the locker room down 57-47. James, who was a surprising dud in Boston's Game 3 win, had 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting in the half.

All four fouls on LeBron looked like fouls to me. But incredibly, against a team that can't keep him from basket, HE shot zero free throws.
