LeBron James will have the opportunity to reach another milestone tonight when the Heat take on the Toronto Raptors.

James has now scored 10 or more points in 499 consecutive NBA matches, and will join an elite club of players who have hit the 500 milestone if he can continue the trend in Toronto.

The astounding feat has its roots way back in 2007 when James netted 19 points against New Jersey, following a game where he only managed eight. Since then he has continued to hit at least 10 points a game.

The Miami power forward is largely expected to add another notch tonight when his team take to the court and will become only the fifth player in NBA history to complete the achievement if he does so.

Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Moses Malone have managed to successfully score ten points in more than 500 consecutive matches, but James insisted he had no idea about the statistic.

"That's pretty cool since you brought it up. I had no idea," he claimed.

"Hopefully you didn't jinx me. ... It is pretty cool, man, when you put it that way. It lets me know that I've been healthy and I've been able to go out on the court and do what I need to do every night and try to help the team win."
