It started on Nov. 14, 2003, when LeBron James made his TD Garden debut as a rookie for the Cleveland Cavaliers, scoring 10-points in a loss to the Boston Celtics.
From that moment on, LeBron became a thorn in the side of the Celtics.
They played again in Cleveland about a month later and he put up 37-points in another loss to Boston.
LeBron went back to the TD Garden on Jan. 9, 2004, scoring 19-points in the third loss to the Celtics during his rookie season.
The Celtics traveled to Cleveland next a month later and took a loss, 89-97, LeBron’s first win over the Celtics.
Celtics radio play-by-play broadcast legend Sean Grande once again crunched numbers to conclude that LeBron has scored the most points as a visitor in the TD Garden.
Once LeBron transferred to Miami, the thorn moved to the other side of the Celtics, as those games/ series vs Miami were some of the most competitive and must-watch basketball during the heydays of the early 2010’s.
As Grande said, LeBron is 157-points over the next closest active visiting player who’s scored the most points in the TD Garden.
The Celtics host Lakers tonight at 8:30 PM.
