LeBron’s Foul-Free Streak Ends on Christmas Day

/ December 26, 2012

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.
