LeBron James further added his name to the record books Tuesday night.
When James scored his 10th point against the Orlando Magic, James moved into second place all-time in consecutive games scored in double-figures. For 788 games in a row, James has scored at least 10 points. Yes, that’s a lot of games.
James passed the NBA’a all-time leading scorer, Kareem Abdul-Jabaar, to move into second place. Atop the list is Michael Jordan with 866 consecutive games scored in double figures. Since the playoffs don’t count towards this record, James could pass Jordan next year if finishes out the Cavs’ final five games and then scores at least 10 points in 74 games next season. Assuming that happens, and considering James still assumedly has a lot of basketball left, it’s easy to imagine him cementing that record even further.
It’s also crazy to think that he’s done this for that long with how many minutes he’s played. The last time LeBron didn’t score 10 points? January 5, 2007 against the Milwaukee Bucks. He was 22 years old.
