When LeBron James' storied NBA career comes to a close, he's probably going to own many, many NBA records. But, few will be as impressive as the one he set last night during a game against the Trail Blazers. In a 117-104 win over Portland, Bron-Bron scored 30 points and made 11-of-15 shots to make him the first player in league history to score at least 30 points and shoot 60 percent in six consecutive games.
"I'm at a loss for words," he said after the game. "Like I say over and over, I know the history of the game. I know how many unbelievable players who came through the ranks, who paved the way for me and my teammates. And, for me to be in the record books by myself with such a stat—any stat—it's big time."
Sure is. And, it's not over. The Heat will play the Thunder on Thursday night, which will give LeBron a chance to extend his streak on a national stage before Miami shuts it down for the All-Star break. So, will he be able to keep his hot streak going against Kevin Durant & Co.? We certainly wouldn't bet against it.
