LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan`s double-digit record

LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan`s double-digit record

James broke Jordan's National Basketball Association record by scoring at least 10 points in his 867th straight regular-season game, a streak the Cavaliers superstar could make almost untouchable by the end of his brilliant career. Michael Jordan owned the record previously, and his mid-career retirement helped the streak span almost 15 years.

James finished with 27 points as the Cavs avoided dropping in the standings with a 107-102 win over the Pelicans.

The last time James didn't score at least 10 points in a game was January 5, 2007, when he had eight points on three-of-13 shooting against the Milwaukee Bucks.

"I grew up 30 minutes south of here where the statistics were not for us so for me to continue being an inspiration to the youth and continue do what I do on the floor, it means a lot to me in that sense".

James never set out to break Jordan's mark, but by staying healthy and being consistent, he moved himself to the top of another statistical list. James has been particularly strong as of late, having stepped up his play following the Cavaliers' busy trade deadline day, which basically reshaped their entire roster.

"My motivation is love of the game", he said.

Swain said that before deciding whether Take-Two committed copyright infringement, she wanted to know how the "average lay observer" would see the tattoos while playing the game, and how prominent the tattoos actually were.

For James though, he is simply reminded of how far he has come every time he gets mentioned among the sport's greatest ever players. The Bulls great totaled eight points for during a loss to the Cavs.

Dwight Howard led the Hornets with 19 points and nine rebounds. The guard scored 21 points and broke the franchise record for points scored at 9,841, passing Dell Curry (9,839).

When the buzzer sounded, James congratulated Walker, who has voiced frustration at missing the playoffs yet again.
