TORONTO (AP) — LeBron James reached another milestone Tuesday, becoming the fifth player in NBA history to score 10 points or more in 500 consecutive games.
James reached the milestone with a putback dunk on Norris Cole's missed shot at 2:31 of the first quarter against the Raptors.
A four-time MVP, James joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (with streaks of 787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) as the only players to accomplish the feat.
James has reached double figures in every game since scoring eight points at Milwaukee on Jan. 5, 2007. He scored 19 at New Jersey the following night.
James has more regular-season games of scoring at least 50 points (nine) than nights where he's scored less than 10 (eight). Factor playoff games into the mix, and he's reached double-figures 898 times in 907 career games.
