LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's record for the most consecutive double-figure games

James ties Jordan's double-digit scoring streak

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James matched one of National Basketball Association icon Michael Jordan's more impressive feats Wednesday as he scored in double figures for the 866th consecutive game.

James reached the milestone early in the first quarter with a two-handed dunk.

On Saturday, James wrote on Instagram that he is "humbled and grateful to be linked with the greats".

No active player is within 600 games of James' streak: James Harden has reached double figures in 257 games, followed by DeMarcus Cousins (162) and Damian Lillard (133). The bucket made it 21-15 and gave LeBron 11 points in the game.

James finished with 41 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Cavs, who bounced back from a dismal defeat in Miami Tuesday in which they scored just 79 points.

Prior to Friday's game LeBron talked about the possibility of breaking the record.
