LeBron James’ insane foul less streak came to an end last night in the Heat’s victory over the Thunder.

Before last night’s game, James had gone 254 minutes, 7 seconds of on-court time without being called for any personal fouls. However, that all ended last night when he tried to block a dunk attempt by Thunder player Serge Ibaka, who made one of the two resulting free throws.

The AP Reports:

The Miami Heat forward was called for a foul against Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka with 7:57 left in the first quarter of the teams’ NBA Finals rematch on Tuesday, marking the first time since Dec. 8 that James was whistled for a personal.

Though he was assessed one technical during that span for arguing a play where he thought he was fouled. He was called for backing into New Orleans’ Lance Thomas with 2:30 left in the first quarter of that game on Dec. 8.
