With 2:14 left in the third quarter on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks, LeBron James has passed Oscar Robertson for 11th all-time in scoring. He owes Al Horford a thank you, as Horford was called for goaltending on the play.

Last night, James passed Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins for 12th on the all-time scoring list. James has passed the likes of Alex English, Reggie Miller, Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce and John Havlicek this season as he moved up the list. Next up is former Rockets great Hakeem Olajuwon, who finished his career with 26,946 points.

James started the season 18th all-time in scoring.
