James about to surpass Jordan's record

Cleveland Cavaliers star Le Bron James returns to the Miami Heat tonight

It was a milestone night for Charlotte's Kemba Walker as well.

During a stoppage in play, the Cavs recognized James in the arena and he was awarded the game ball, which he handed to the team's head of security. It's not like I go into every game saying, 'OK, I've got to get 10 points.' It's just kind of organic. Jordan's streak lasted from March 22, 1986, when he scored eight points for the Chicago Bulls in a loss to the Cavs, until December 27, 2001, when he scored six points as a 38-year-old for the Washington Wizards in a game against the Indiana Pacers.

LeBron James doesn't go into every game thinking he needs to score 10 points. The historic bucket to accomplish the feat was scored in the sixth minute of the first quarter in the Cavaliers' game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

James' streak began back on January 6, 2007 when he was just 23 years old and, according to ESPN, the three-time National Basketball Association champion has only fell short of reaching double digits in a game on eight occasions.

James matched Jordan's 17-year-old mark in the second quarter when he scored his 10th point on a powerful alley-oop dunk off a pass from J.R. Smith. "I think it's been like 11 years that I've been able to accomplish this feat so I've been able to take care of my body, that's one, and I've been around some great teammates and coaches and two organizations that have allowed me to be who I am, so that's two, and just going out and playing for the joy of the game".

They vary in price depending on where you're going, and there are lots and lots of them happening just about everywhere. As the story of the Easter Bunny spread throughout the country, Easter baskets became the tradition.

"Well, I tell you, LeBron has been healthy, and he continues to be healthy", Cavs acting coach Larry Drew said when asked about James' impending record before the game.

"My love for the game... it's my motivation", James said.

"Any time I'm in the same group as the greats of this game, that's very humbling knowing where I come from", James told ESPN's Adam Schefter after the game.

To put James' double-digit scoring mark in perspective, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA's career scoring leader, scored at least 10 in 787 consecutive games.

Dwight Howard led the Hornets with 19 points and nine rebounds.
