Cleveland Cavaliers star Le Bron James returns to the Miami Heat tonight

The Cleveland Cavs stars rached the mark in the first quarter for the 867th straight time in his team's 107-102 win against the New Orleans Pelicans.

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

U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain in Manhattan said she needed a better understanding of how Take-Two Interactive Software Inc's flagship game is "generally played", before deciding whether its "realistic" depiction of tattoos licensed by Solid Oak Sketches LLC amounted to fair use. With AP Photos.LeBron James has set an National Basketball Association record by scoring at least 10 points in 867 straight regular-season games.

James, 33, was honored with a standing ovation at the Quicken Loans Arena after achieving the milestone. "It means a lot for me, and it means more to the youth that kind of needs hope", added James.

James has scored at least 10 points in every regular-season game since January 5, 2007, when he scored eight points in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. "I have been around some great teammates and coaches and two organizations that have allowed me to be who I am and so that's two and then just going out and playing for the joy of the game".

But James said records aren't what motivates him. Among current players, Houston's James Harden has done it in 257 games - 410 behind James.

"I think records are always meant to be broken", he said.

ESPN also reported that Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, and Kyle Korver all rejoined the Cavaliers Friday night in some capacity following time off for all three players, and while not everyone is out on the court at this point in time, the pieces are finally starting to come back to the Cavaliers as the playoffs are just around the corner.

James' record underscores his durability, reliability and scoring skill.

An avid sports fan, James said all of those streaks are meaningful. "It's a pretty cool achievement".
