LeBron James’s record-setting streak of high scoring and efficiency came to an end Thursday night, but he still led the way with 39 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists to lead the visitingMiami Heat over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 110-100. Heading into the game, James had recorded six consecutive games with 30 or more points while shooting over than 60 percent. Against the Thunder, he scored 39 but shot 58.3 percent, missing a 28-footer with 1 minute 2 seconds left that dropped his shooting percentage below 60. Bummer!
Since January he’s still managed to shoot 59.5 percent (226 for 380) from the field which is still quite impressive. Even though James’ streak came to an end, he still managed to walk away from Thursdays game with another NBA record to add his list of accomplishments. James became the third player in NBA history to have seven consecutive games of 30 or more points according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The only other players to record such streaks are Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain.
