LeBron James averaged 26.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game this season while shooting 54.8 percent from the field.

And somehow it still kind of felt like he was coasting.

Now the playoffs are here, which means it’s time for LeBron to kick it into high gear. In the first round, his Cavaliers are taking on the Indiana Pacers, a team he has a history of tormenting.

And in Game One on Saturday, LeBron didn’t waste any time getting to it.

There was this full-court rush to the basket for a lay-up, during which he looked essentially invincible.

And this beautiful overhand pass to Channing Frye for two points.

And this alley-oop in which took a poor lob and threw down what was basically a no-look reverse.

And this beautiful fast break that had James absolutely pumped.

As of this writing, at the end of the third quarter, LeBron has 26 points on 10-of-13 shooting, plus five rebounds and 10 assists, as the Cavs lead 92-84.

Just another day at the office for Playoff LeBron.

UPDATE: The Cavs won 109-108, and LeBron finished with 32-6-13.
