James ties Jordan feat at New York

February 05, 2009|Associated Press

NEW YORK — LeBron James couldn't catch Kobe Bryant, so he settled for matching Michael Jordan.

James had a season-high 52 points in his 21st career triple-double, joining Jordan as the only visiting players with multiple 50-point games at the present Madison Square Garden, and led Cleveland to a 107-102 win over New York on Wednesday night.

James' feat came two nights after the Lakers' Bryant set a record there with 61 points. James also had 11 assists and 10 rebounds, becoming the first player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975 to have a triple-double in a 50-point game.
