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.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’
“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.
“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
