LeBron matches Jordan as Cavaliers down the Hornets

02 Апреля 2018

LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan's record for most consecutive games with at least 10 points during Cleveland Cavaliers' 107-102 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday evening (Saturday AEDT).

James scored 11 points at the 6:00 mark of the first quarter. I definitely went over and just told him how incredible that was. I have been able to take care of my body that's one. "It means a lot for me, and it means more to the youth that kind of needs hope".

James was given a standing ovation when he was presented the game ball during a short stoppage in play at a sold-out Quicken Loans Arena after scoring at least 10 points in 867 career games in a row. James finished with 41 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Cavs, who bounced back from a dismal defeat in Miami Tuesday in which they scored just 79 points.

Jordan's streak spanned from March 25, 1986, during his second season in the league, to December 26, 2001, which was 26 games into his first season with the Washington Wizards after spending the previous three years in retirement.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is third on the all-time double-digit-streak list (787 games). "So I didn't think I could be Mike".

"To all my teammates over the 866 games, my coaches, everybody - they've given me the opportunity to do that", James said.

An avid sports fan, James said all of those streaks are meaningful. That number is just going to keep climbing, just going to keep climbing. Even as his career gets older, moves to the 4 and bangs with the big boys, he'll still be fine, he'll still be faster than majority, he'll still shoot it better than majority.

"I'm just, I'm really speechless", said Cavs acting head coach Larry Drew.

"I don't know in my lifetime if I've ever seen another guy like that - that's that durable and can get it done every single night the way he's gotten it done".

"Becoming a franchise's all-time leading scorer is a big accomplishment and it's a testament to his hard work, dedication and passion for the game of basketball", Jordan said. "Certainly Michael was as good of a finesse player as there was".
