LeBron James Makes History vs. Portland Blazers (VIDEO)

by February 13, 2013

The NBA’s reigning MVP continues to on his torrid, historical pace. LeBron James lit up the visiting Blazers to the tune of 30 points (on 11/15 shooting), 9 assists and 6 rebounds in a 117-104 Miami Heat win. LBJ becomes the first player in League history to score 30 while connecting on at least 60% of his field goal attempts in six straight games. Even James can’t seem to  believe how well he’s playing. Per the AP: “It was the 1,000th regular-season win in Heat history. But on this night, the only history anyone will remember was what James accomplished. ‘I’m at a loss for words,’ James said in a televised postgame interview. ‘Like I say over and over, I know the history of the game. I know how many unbelievable players who came through the ranks, who paved the way for me and my teammates. And for me to be in the record books by myself with such a stat – any stat – it’s big-time.’ […] In NBA history, only Adrian Dantley and Moses Malone had put together five straight 30-point, 60-percent efforts – that is, until James joined their super-exclusive club. And now, he stands alone. […] ‘It kind of blew my mind,’ James said. ‘To see how small the list was and for me to even be a part of the list, to start off, it’s like, ‘Wow.’ … ‘Wow’ doesn’t even come close to summing up how he’s been in the last six games. He’s shot 66 for 92 – and take away a ‘slow’ 6-for-12 start at Toronto on Feb. 3, he’s made 60 of his last 80 field-goal tries, a ridiculous 75 percent success rate. He’s scored either 30, 31 or 32 points in all six of these games.”
