James records 7000 career assist in Cavs win over Hornets

The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James and the Memphis Grizzlies' Marc Gasol today were named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Monday, Dec. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 11.

As the final seconds ticked off, James stood at midcourt and spun the ball on his index finger as the crowd roared.

LeBron James just recently recorded his 7,000th career assist in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 116-105 win over the Charlotte Hornets which led him to become the first frontcourt player in the National Basketball Association history who has reached the plateau of his career.

But James' brilliant bounce pass to Tristan Thompson on Saturday resulted in a dunk and James' 7,000th career assist, making him the first frontcourt player to ever reach the lofty figure. James garnered 17 out of those 44 points during the fourth quarter which includes 13 straight points at one stretch that puts the game out of reach.

James, who moved into ninth place on the career scoring list Friday, recorded his 7,000th assist in the first half, becoming the first frontcourt player in National Basketball Association history to reach the plateau.

James is likely to pass Moses Malone in the next two weeks for eighth on the NBA's all-time scoring list, and Tim Hardaway for 15th in assists.

"A lot of our guys had heavy legs tonight", James told reporters, "and it was up to me to get through it". "That's the triple threat of me". "I've re-arranged a little bit with my diet and things of that nature and it's worked to my benefit". It's the game I watched my whole life growing up.

Charlotte had cut its 19-point deficit to three late in the third before James crushed its comeback hopes.

Kemba Walker scored 24 points and Cody Zeller had 17 points and nine rebounds for the Hornets, who had their own three-game winning streak snapped.

"It's not bad at all", said Walker, who had a sleeve over his left knee. I'm just in a really good rhythm right now. "I was coming off a ball screen and he ran into me".

"When LeBron is shooting the ball like that, there is nothing you can do other than blitz him", said Charlotte coach Steve Clifford, whose squad is 14-10. Every time the Hornets rallied, James was there to swat them away.

"He passed. He rebounded". Shumpert made four more 3s Saturday and remains among the league leaders in long-distance shooting.

"In this league, there's going to be some nights when you're going to play awesome, there's going to be some nights when you don't play well and there's going to be some nights when you play just good enough to get a win", said Wade, who also had three assists and a steal.

The Cavs shot 68 percent in the first half and maintained a 17-point lead early in the third quarter before the Hornets began to rally.

(Assistant coach Mike) Longabardi said the Cavs did use the iPads more in games during the playoffs and the Finals last season, and the experience would be enhanced by now being able to upload plays for review immediately at the bench, instead of having to wait for them from the tunnel. "But he came to me and said, 'Man, coach, I'm fine".
