Kevin Love and LeBron James reached some pretty impressive milestones in Wednesday’s win over Toronto

CLEVELAND– Both Kevin Love and LeBron James reached milestones on Wednesday night that no other players in league history have accomplished, as the Cavaliers used a second-half comeback to top the Toronto Raptors, 132-129.

In the win, Love finished with 23 points, 12 rebounds and four assists. He also shot 4-of-6 from beyond the 3-point arc, including a bomb from the right baseline with 27 seconds left to put the Cavs up, 128-124.

With that 3-pointer, Love tallied 1,000 for his career, making him the only player in league history to have 1,000 career 3s while also averaging at least 10.0 rebounds per game.

James was once again out of this world, ending the night with 35 points, 20 of which came in the second half, 17 assists, seven rebounds and zero turnovers.

Per Elias Sports Bureau, James is the only player to have 15-plus assists and zero turnovers in a single game since the NBA started tracking turnovers in the 1977-78 season.
