LeBron James scored in double figures for his 867th straight game on Friday Night, setting a record that will be hard to surpass. He had been tied with Michael Jordan.
He accepted the game ball, lifted it over his head, and took time to soak up the cheering crowd, who just witnessed history, and then immediately returned to work.
Following the game, James commented “That’s a good moment, a special moment for my family and for so many kids that look up to me for inspiration, to know that you can actually go out there, and do it and know where I’ve come from”.
James finished the game with 27 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds, in beating the visiting New Orleans Hornets 107-102. The Cavs are currently sitting in 3rd place, in the NBA’s Eastern conference, assured of making the playoffs.
James and the reworked personnel, are still working to achieve a strategy, and an overall fit, for each of the new team members. I’m sure that James will have them ready for the Playoffs.
