Not so lucky seven ends Kareem's streak
By Larry Schwartz
Special to ESPN.com


Dec. 4, 1987

Consistency has been the hallmark of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: He's scored in double digits in 787 consecutive regular-season games over 10 years -- until tonight. The Los Angeles Lakers center and National Basketball Association's all-time leading scorer is held to seven points by his former team, the Milwaukee Bucks, in an 85-83 Laker loss in Milwaukee.

Abdul-Jabbar shoots 3-of-10 from the field.

His double-digit record will last for a decade, until it's broken by -- who else? -- Michael Jordan.
