Before LeBron James played his first-ever NBA game more than 13 years ago, he broke bread with Moses Malone. And Tuesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar pushed past the man he affectionately refers to as “Uncle Mo” on the league’s all-time scoring list.

With 9:11 remaining in the first quarter of the Cavs’ eventual 114-108 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks, James reached 27,410 points for his career, doing what Malone did best: scoring off an offensive rebound. The bucket edged James past Malone for eighth on the all-time scoring list.

James finished with 34 points on the night, bringing his career total to 27,442.

The Spurs listed forward Kawhi Leonard as probable for Tuesday’s road matchup at Dallas, which means it’s likely that the two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year will make his season debut against the Mavericks.

The club originally targeted Saturday’s game at Phoenix as a potential debut for Leonard, but sources on Friday said the forward wanted “a couple more days” to recover from the right quadriceps tendinopathy that has kept him out of all 27 of the Spurs’ games thus far this season.
