In the game against San Antonio Spurs, which his team LA Lakers won 121-107, he was good for double digits for the 1000th regular-season game in a row. LeBron James scored 26 points against the Spurs. James just became the first player in NBA history to score at least 10 points in 1,000 consecutive regular-season games.

“I have to do things to help our team win. If that’s scoring, rebounding, defending, assisting, doing little things and be available for my teammates throughout the course of the game when I’m on the floor and also when I’m on the bench, I’ve been fortunate enough to do that in my career for the majority of it. I give a lot of credit to my teammates and coaching staffs throughout the course of my career that allows me to be who I am and to use my influence for the betterment of the team as well.“, said LeBron James.
