With a third quarter put back, LeBron James has moved another spot higher on the NBA all-time scoring list.

In the third, James passed San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan for 14th all-time in scoring with 23,337 points. As of now, James has upped his career points total to 26,373.

Duncan would have had a chance to pass James tonight, but he's sitting out as the Spurs take on the Kings. If James maintains his lead over Duncan, Celtics great John Havlicek is next up on the list with 26,395 points. It's possible that James could pass Havlicek when the Memphis Grizzlies come to town on Monday.
