Making a statement: Heat celebrate return home by throttling LeBron James, Cavaliers

Once he scores 10 points against New Orleans, probably at some point in the first half Friday night, James will surpass Jordan's record and add another check mark to his side in the greatest-player-of-all-time debate.

The last time James scored less than 10 points was against the Milwaukee Bucks on January 5, 2007. And then I'm just going out and playing for the joy of the game.

Jordan set his streak from 1986-2001.

James matched Jordan's 17-year-old mark Wednesday night against the Jordan-owned Charlotte Hornets when he scored on a powerful alley-oop dunk on a pass from J.R. Smith in the second quarter.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James takes yet another step in his quest of chasing the "ghost that played in Chicago" as he surpassed a record set by National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan.

A team record also fell after hosts Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns, 22, erupted for a career-high 56 points - eclipsing Mo Williams' 52 - to propel the Timberwolves to a 126-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

"Well, I tell you, LeBron has been healthy, and he continues to be healthy", Cavs acting coach Larry Drew said when asked about James' impending record before the game.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ranks third all-time with a 787-game streak than ran from December 1977 to December 1987.

In addition to his regular-season records, James is the Cavaliers' franchise leader in points scored (3,825), scoring average (29.4 points per game), assists (990), field goals made (1,353) and attempted (2,849), free throws made (911) and attempted (1,253), three-pointers made (208) and attempted (650), defensive rebounds (992), total rebounds (1,188), steals (234) and minutes played (5,499) over 130 postseason games. "He's something different. But the one thing that both guys do have in common, they're really driven to win and to be the best". You just never seen anything like LeBron with his size, his speed, his power. "We did a great job", he said.
