(TORONTO) — Miami Heat forward LeBron James became the fifth player in NBA history to score at least 10 points in 500 consecutive games Tuesday.
James accomplished the feat in the first quarter of the team’s 104-95 win over the Toronto Raptors.
James joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (787 and 508 games), Michael Jordan (866), Karl Malone (575) and Moses Malone (526) as the only players to accomplish the streak.
The last time James didn’t score in double digits was Jan. 5, 2007 at Milwaukee. James scored eight points in that game.
