LeBron James scores double figures for a 1,000th consecutive game

James reached a streak of 1,000 straight games in double-digit

Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James led his team with 26 points on his 36th birthday.

James extended his scoring streak to quadruple digits Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

James’ jump hook with 6:15 remaining in the second quarter against the host San Antonio Spurs gave him 11 points for the game, marking the 1,000th consecutive NBA game with 10 points or more for the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.

He finished with 26 points in a 121-107 Lakers victory.

“I just go out there and try to prepare and be the best every night I step on the floor,” James said after the game. “If I’m in uniform, I’ve got to do things that help our team win. If it’s scoring, rebounding, defending, assisting, doing little things. Just be available for my teammates throughout the course of the game when I’m on the floor, also on the bench. And I’ve been fortunate enough to do that throughout my career for the majority of it.”

James already passed Michael Jordan for the longest double-digit scoring streak in league history on March 30, 2018. He scored 27 points against the New Orleans Pelicans to move up to No. 1 on the league’s all-time list with 867 consecutive games of at least 10 points.
