LeBron James Ties Michael Jordan Double Digit Scoring Games

Updated

on

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.
