LeBron James passes Michael Jordan with 867th straight double-digit game

Dwyane Wade swatted Le Bron James during Heat-Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) acknowledges the crowd after setting the record for most consecutive games with double digit points in National Basketball Association history during the first half against the New Orleans Pelicans at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron James passed Michael Jordan on Friday night for consecutive games with at least 10 points, doing so for the 867th straight time in the Cavaliers' 107-102 win against the New Orleans Pelicans.

James has scored 6,163 points in postseason play, and will get a chance to build upon that total when the NBA Playoffs get underway in two weeks.

James' streak extends back to January 5, 2007, when he scored eight points on 3-for-13 shooting in a Cavs win over the Milwaukee Bucks, his last game in which he didn't score at least 10 points.

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).

Jordan's streak lasted from March 1986 until December 2001.

A team record also fell after hosts Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns, 22, erupted for a career-high 56 points - eclipsing Mo Williams' 52 - to propel the Timberwolves to a 126-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Sixers' Joel Embiid to undergo more tests, miss at least two games
As you might imagine, Philadelphia has looked like two completely different teams with and without Embiid on the court this year. Embiid was averaging 22.9 points and 11 rebounds per game despite minutes restrictions and was named an All-Star.

"It's not like I set out to say that I want to be the No. 1 in scoring 10 points, double digits or consecutive games or whatever that and whatnot, but anytime like a statistical category comes up and I'm able to accomplish something like that, I mean it's pretty incredible", he said.

James averaged 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists while shooting.564 from the field and.387 from three-point range.

Abdul-Jabbar is third on the double-digit streak list (787 games). James surpassed Jordan with a dunk in the first quarter. It's just another feat for me to be appreciative and humbled by what I've been able to do.

"My love for the game... it's my motivation", James said. You just never seen anything like LeBron with his size, his speed, his power.

"Everywhere we go he gets a standing ovation", Smith said.

"I wasn't supposed to be here", the six-foot-one, 184-pound Walker told the crowd moments after the game ended.
