How many steps can a guy take before the officials blow the whistle?

Late in the third quarter of Wednesday's 140-138 Wolves loss to the Cavaliers, LeBron James clearly gets away with not one, but two traveling violations on the same play. 

Considering LeBron hit the jumper after his double travel, the Wolves maybe never would have found themselves in overtime on the road. Instead, they might be looking at a huge road victory.
