LeBron James joined Michael Jordan in the record books Wednesday as perhaps the most consistent scorer in NBA history while playing against the team that Jordan owns.
James tied Jordan’s all-time league record of 866 consecutive games with 10 points or more in the first half of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 118-105 win over the Charlotte Hornets, hitting the mark off an alley-oop from JR Smith with 6:10 remaining in the second quarter.
James’ streak extends back to Jan. 5, 2007, when he scored eight points on 3-for-13 shooting in a Cavs win over the Milwaukee Bucks, his last game in which he didn’t score at least 10 points. Jordan’s streak lasted from March 22, 1986, when he scored eight points for the Chicago Bulls in a loss to the Cavs until Dec. 27, 2001, when he scored six points as a 38-year-old for the Washington Wizards in a game against the Indiana Pacers.

Report: Jontay Porter Out for Season with Torn ACL, MCL
Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.
Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.
He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.
Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
