LeBron James takes over No. 1 alone on Cavs assists list
DALLAS (AP) — LeBron James holds another Cavaliers after getting his 4,207th assist in a Cleveland uniform.
James had an assist on James Jones’ 3-pointer early in the second quarter against Dallas on Tuesday night, breaking a tie with Mark Price for the Cavs’ career assists record.
Back in Cleveland after four seasons with the Miami Heat, James was already the Cavaliers’ career leader for points, field goals made and attempted, 3-pointers made and attempted, free throws made and attempted, steals and minutes played. He played his first seven NBA seasons with the Cavs.
Only seven other players lead a franchise in points, assists and steals: Michael Jordan (Bulls), Kevin Garnett (Timberwolves), Reggie Miller (Pacers), Gary Payton (Sonics/Thunder), Randy Smith (Clippers), Isiah Thomas (Pistons) and Dwyane Wade (Heat).
