LeBron James moves into 20th place on NBA’s all-time scoring list (VIDEO)


With his first bucket of the night — a hook shot of sorts in the lane over Luol Deng after backing him down in the post — LeBron James passed Patrick Ewing to move into 20th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

The play occurred in Thursday’s nationally televised contest between the Cavaliers and the Heat.

Next up on the list is Jerry West, who was leading LeBron by 376 points as of these two that James scored early in this contest. James is unlikely to pass him before the regular season is finished with just six games left, but barring anything unexpected, he’ll get there early next season.
