CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - With Justin Timberlake in the house, it's become a starlit night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Timberlake, who's slated to perform tomorrow night at the Q as part of his Man of the Woods world tour, popped up on the arena's big screen to the delight of thousands of fans.

It was a dual celebration as LeBron James, facing off against the New Orleans Pelicans, set an NBA record for the most consecutive games (867) with double-digit scoring.

After a monster slam the crowd stood to it's feet for a standing ovation. LeBron finished with 11 in the first quarter and a near triple double to finish as the Cavs put the Pelicans away 107-102.

Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan had held the record (866) before James dethroned him Friday evening.

However, CBS Sports did post an interesting stat following the record-breaking moment:
