LeBron James records 50th career triple-double
Tuesday April 14th, 2015

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James recorded his second triple double of the season in Monday's 109-97 win over the Detroit Pistons. He now has 50 career triple doubles, including the postseason.

James had 21 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in 32 minutes. 

With the Cavaliers locked in to the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, Monday's game was largely meaningless. The other Cavs starters all played fewer minutes than James, who apparently stayed in the game in pursuit of the triple double. James grabbed his 10th rebound with 8:08 left in the game and was subbed out 27 seconds later.

James's first triple-double of the season came last week against the Chicago Bulls. Prior to that game, his last triple double in a Cleveland uniform came in the 2010 playoffs.
