Cavs' James on brink of breaking Jordan's mark

Dwyane Wade swatted Le Bron James during Heat-Cavs

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.

There was a brief stoppage in play, as everyone at sold-out Quicken Loans Arena - including Justin Timberlake - stood and applauded as James was handed the game ball.

"I don't know. It's not like I set out to say I wanna become No. 1 in scoring 10-plus points, double digits for consecutive games or whatever and whatnot", he said.

James said the Cavs had to bounce back after they were stymied by the Heat.

Jordan's streak spanned from March 25, 1986, during his second season in the league, to December 26, 2001, which was 26 games into his first season with the Washington Wizards after spending the previous three years in retirement.

The Cleveland Cavs stars rached the mark in the first quarter for the 867th straight time in his team's 107-102 win against the New Orleans Pelicans. The bucket made it 21-15 and gave LeBron 11 points in the game. He finished with 41 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists for the game.

The last time he failed to score at least 10 points was on Jan 5, 2007, when he had eight points in 43 minutes on three-for-13 shooting against the Milwaukee Bucks. It happens, and anytime I'm mentioned with some of the greats, and arguably the greatest basketball player of all time in Mike, it's just another feat for me to be appreciative and humbled by what I've been able to do.

"There are going to be more records down the road he'll be breaking if he continues at this pace, if he continues to stay healthy and he continues to produce the numbers that he's been producing", Drew said. Among current players, Houston's James Harden has done it in 257 games _ 410 behind James.

"It means a lot for me, and it means more to the youth that kind of needs hope", added James.

An avid sports fan, James said all of those streaks are meaningful.

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.
