LeBron ties MJ's double-digit scoring streak

LeBron James says he should win the NBA MVP

When the Cavaliers (45-30) host the New Orleans Pelicans today, he can break Jordan's mark that ran from March 25, 1986 of his second National Basketball Association season to Dec 26, 2001 - 26 games into his first term with the Washington Wizards following three years in retirement.

Although the game got away from the Hornets in the fourth quarter, there was still the matter of Kemba Walker attempting to pass Dell Curry as the franchise's career scoring leader.

Playing in front of his hometown fans at the Quicken Loans Arena, James received a standing ovation. That evening, he had just eight points on 3-for-13 shooting in a Cavs win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

James's effort propelled the Cavs to a bounce-back win after a disappointing defeat to the Heat in Miami on Tuesday - when they produced a season-low 79 points. But with one of his patented two-handed dunks midway through the first quarter, James moved ahead of Jordan, whose streak stretched from 1986 to 2001. James broke the mark he shared with Michael Jordan against the New Orleans Pelicans.

LeBron James doesn't go into every game thinking he needs to score 10 points. He finished with 41 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists for the game.

Venus Williams rallies to reach Miami Open quarters
When Williams slammed a forehand victor on the last point, she spun with a grin in celebration, her fist leading the way. JO KONTA will drop out of the world's top 20 after the defence of her Miami title was ended by Venus Williams .


"Where I've come from, brought up 30 minutes south of here, and the statistics is always stacked up against you, and for me to be in this position today, being able to accomplish something that a lot of people thought would not happen again or be able to break a record like that..."

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

The last time James failed to score at least 10 points was on January 5, 2007, when he scored eight points on 3-of-13 shooting against the Milwaukee Bucks.

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).

LeBron told reporters during shootaround on Friday that eclipsing Jordan's mark would be "incredible", though he acknowledged the specificity of the record.
