ATLANTA (AP) — LeBron James has moved past Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson into 11th place on the NBA’s scoring list.

James scored on a layup when Atlanta’s Al Horford was called for goaltending with 2:14 remaining in the third quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers game at the Hawks on Friday night, giving him 26,711 points. James began the night 21 points behind Robertson’s 26,710 points.

James moved past Robertson only one night after passing former Hawks Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins for 12th place.

James has also surpassed Jerry West, Reggie Miller, Alex English, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, John Havlicek and Tim Duncan on the scoring list this season.
