NBA 1,000 games with 10 or more points
The Los Angeles Lakers’ defeat of the San Antonio Spurs is a game that had already gone down in history as Becky Hammon became the first ever woman to take charge of an NBA side in a league game.
But LeBron James made his own history on the same night as he celebrated his 36th birthday, as he scored more than 10 points for the 1,000th consecutive game.
LeBron left Michael Jordan’s previous record behind him some time ago, with the former Chicago Bulls start reaching 886 consecutive 10-point games. That record was broken on March 30, 2018.
In every game he has played since January 6, 2007, LeBron has scored at least 10 points.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is in third place, having gone 787 games between 1977 and 1987, Karl Malone’s 575 is the fourth best run, ahead of Kevin Durant’s 562, which ran from March 14, 2009 to February 27, 2017.
