LeBron James Ties Michael Jordan's Streak of Games with 10-Plus Points

After playing every single game this season, it's a testament to James' greatness that as the playoffs approach, he's playing with more vigor than he has all season.

Jordan did not comment on James tying his streak.

"At this point in my career, I'm just trying to break the mold, break the narrative of guys in their 15 year", said LeBron.

The victory snapped a two-game skid for the Timberwolves, who are chasing their first playoff berth since 2004 and who moved up to seventh in the Western Conference with the win and Utah's 97-94 loss to the Boston Celtics that dropped the Jazz into the eighth and final playoff spot.

The 33-year-old James, who began his streak on January 6, 2007, can break Jordan's record Friday night at home against the New Orleans Pelicans.

"I've stayed available, obviously", James said following a 41-point, 10-rebound, 8-assist performance in a win over the Hornets.

"I would vote for me", James told Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.

Cleveland came in averaging 31 points per quarter over its last five games, then managed only 34 in the first half against the Heat. "That's a good moment, a special moment not only for myself but for my family and for so many kids that look up to me for inspiration to know that you can actually go out there and do it", a humbled James said after the game, via ESPN.

Taketwo has cautioned that game enthusiasts see the antiques "fleetingly", also that it had been fair to depict National Basketball Association stars since they are in actuality, in the proper circumstance.

Watching James catch and overtake Jordan has been thrilling to his teammates, who are continually awed by a player who shows little signs of wear.

Hornets: Walker established a new team record with his 44th consecutive made free throw. Seven Washington players scored in double figures, led by Markieff Morris's 15 points, and the Wizards snapped a three-game losing streak to strengthen their position in the tight Eastern Conference.

1,029: James' streak could have been 1,029 games if not for that eight-point game in 2007. Jeff Green contributed with 18 points while Rodney Hood rounded out the double-digit scorers with 13 points.

The Lakers were 103-93 winners against the Mavericks as Brook Lopez scored 22 points and Julius Randle added 20 with 10 rebounds.

CHARLOTTE (105): Kidd-Gilchrist 5-7 1-2 11, Williams 0-4 6-6 6, Howard 7-12 5-5 19, Walker 7-18 5-5 21, Batum 2-5 2-2 6, Bacon 3-7 0-0 6, Kaminsky 7-9 1-2 16, Hernangomez 0-0 0-0 0, Monk 3-6 0-0 7, Lamb 4-6 2-2 11, Graham 1-2 0-0 2.
