Damn, I nearly got a heart attack when I checked the box score for Cleveland-Portland this morning.
Never mind that Cleveland lost, LeBron finished with only 11 points! His lowest total since 1867!
We’re very lucky that it was still in double digits and that his streak didn’t end. This was the 575th game in a row that LeBron scored in double digits, and now he equalled Karl Malone‘s record for the 3rd longest such streak EVAR. Next game he should bump Malone one place down.
Next up – Kareem, 787 games… Still a long way to go, that’s two and a half seasons away… Plenty of time for LeBron to think carefully about what he did yesterday. I really hope he learned his lesson and won’t be giving us such scares anytime soon.
