LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — LeBron James can reach his 10th NBA Finals tonight if the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

James would tie NBA career scoring leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third on the career list with 10 NBA Finals appearances.

Only Hall of Famers Bill Russell and Sam Jones have gone to more - 12 for Russell and 11 for Jones.

The Lakers lead the series 3-1, but Denver has overcome the same deficit in its series against Utah and the Clippers.
