LeBron breaks another Jordan record

LeBron matches Jordan as Cavaliers down the Hornets

LeBron matches Jordan as Cavaliers down the Hornets

James' numbers back up his claim, as he is now leading the league in minutes and among the top three in both points and assists despite a continually changing roster surrounding him.

Still chasing championships, LeBron James caught and passed Michael Jordan on one list.

James entered Friday's game against New Orleans sharing the mark with Jordan, one of his boyhood heroes.

Jordan set his streak from 1986-2001. He finished with 41 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists as the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers won 118-105 at the Spectrum Centre.

During a stoppage in play, James was the ball and he received a standing ovation from the crowd, which included pop superstar Justin Timberlake.

But the double-digit scoring streak, which dates to January 5, 2007, and an eight-point game against Milwaukee in his fifth season, has turned him somewhat reflective. In the time since, he has won three National Basketball Association championships, left Cleveland for Miami and returned, and established himself as one of the best players in league history.

"We had to bounce back", said James, whose Cavs are trying to reach the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year. He had eight points and shot a nauseating 3-of-13 from the floor.

He explained, "It is not like I set out to say I want to be the number in scoring 10-plus points double digits for consecutive games or whatever, and what-not but any time a statistical category comes up and I am able to accomplish something like that, it is pretty incredible". "And I've been around some great teammates and coaches, and two organizations that have allowed me to be who I am, that's two".

His rival Moussa gained less than 3 percent of the vote and some 9 percent of voters had invalidated their ballots there. Vote counting began after polls closed late on Wednesday, wrapping up three days of voting.

To put James' double-digit scoring mark in perspective, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's career scoring leader, scored at least 10 in 787 consecutive games.

No active player is within 600 games of James' streak: James Harden has reached double figures in 257 games, followed by DeMarcus Cousins (162) and Damian Lillard (133).

James can envision a day when his record is toppled.

"I've stayed available, obviously", James said when asked how the streak was possible.

"My love for the game... it's my motivation", James said.

U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain at Manhattan said she wanted a greater comprehension of how taketwo Interactive computer software Inc's flagship match is "ordinarily played", before deciding whether its own "thoughtful" depiction of tattoos certified by Strong Oak Sketches LLC equates to fair use.

"I can't tell you how I've been able to do it", James said.
