LeBron sets a scoring record

There are a lot of things that LeBron James does well on the basketball court. The Los Angeles Lakers and their fans have had the luxury of seeing this first hand for the last two seasons.

When breaking down James’s game, many people point to his ability to run an offense as his greatest strength. At 6’9”, James can see the game from a different perspective than many point guards. He can see over most defenders and is a great playmaker, leading the NBA in assists per game this season.

While people love the playmaking and selflessness that James plays with, he has proven that he can get a bucket when need be. At this point, his scoring prowess sometimes goes overlooked, but in 2018, he reminded everyone just how dominant of a scorer he could be.

Against the Charlotte Hornets, James tied Michael Jordan for the most consecutive games scoring in double-figures with 866. He would break the record in his next game against the New Orleans Pelicans on March 30th.

This is a streak that he has added 122 more games to, the last 115 of which have come wearing the purple and gold. January 5th, 2007 is the last time that James didn’t score in double-figures in a game.

The closest active streak belongs to James Harden, who has scored in double-figures in 402 consecutive games, dating back to February 20th, 2015.
