Cavs’ LeBron James secures triple-double average for February
LeBron James has done it. He has achieved on Tuesday night something he has not yet pulled off in his illustrious career.
With yet another solid performance from the Cleveland Cavaliers star forward, The King has now secured a triple-double average for the month of February, which is the first time in his career he has done it over that span, according to Cavs Nation’s own Kenny Honaker.

Finishing with 31 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists on Tuesday night, James reached the feat in convincing fashion. More importantly, he led the Wine and Gold to a 129-123 victory against the Brooklyn Nets. George Hill chipped in 26 points, three rebounds, five assists and three steals of his own, while Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson had 14 points each.
The feats just keep on coming for James, who earlier this season became the only player in NBA history to amass at least 29,000 points, 8,000 rebounds, and 7,000 assists, seventh to reach 30,000 points, became the Cleveland Cavaliers’ all-time leader in rebounds, and only the seventh player to score at least 11,000 field goals. Now, he can add a triple-double average for a month to his growing list of achievements, and proving further that he will continue to be one of the best players in the world despite already being 33 years old not, and that he will not slow down anytime soon.
If James can continue playing at the level he’s in for at least a couple more seasons, he could break more records and further cement his status as an all-time great, and possibly win more championships as well.
