Having lost eight of nine going into Monday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed something good to happen. It took some extra time – two overtimes to be exact – but something good finally did happen for the defending Eastern Conference champions in a 104-99 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. LeBron led all scorers with 31 points. When he made a first-quarter free throw, James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 9,000 career points. He reached the plateau at 22 years, 352 days. James, who entered the game with 8,997 career points, took the record from Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, who was 24 years, 127 days old when he reached 9,000. Check out the highligths video.
