Cavaliers star LeBron James, considered perhaps the greatest small forward ever to play, crossed paths in the record books with arguably basketball’s all-time-best power forward.
When scoring the 16th and 17th of his game-high 28 points on a layup with 4:43 remaining in the third quarter, James passed Tim Duncan for 14th on the career scoring list. Duncan, who has 26,366 career points, was given the night off to rest in the San Antonio Spurs’ 104-94 win over the Sacramento Kings.
