LeBron Scores 10,000th Point in Loss
With 4:24 to go in the first half LeBron James limped into the locker room looking like he suffered a pretty serious ankle injury. After the x-rays came out negative he returned in the second half to score his 10,000th career point, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach the plateau. Even more impressive is that Lebron is more then a full year younger then the next youngest to 10,000 pts, Kobe was 24 years and 193 days to Lebron who is 23 years and 59 days. This record feat was still not enough to propel the Cavs to victory as they still came up short in Boston by a score of 92-87. It looks like Boston will be in a race until the end of the regular season with Detroit for the top seed in the east, a situation we are sure the Celtics would have liked to avoid so they could rest their stars down the stretch.
