LeBron James continues to make history.
On Friday, the 15-time All-Star scored 25 points in a win over the Miami Heat. It marked the 1,000th time in his NBA career that James has scored at least 20 points in a regular season game.
With that, James became only the third player in NBA history to have 1,000 such games.

According to Basketball Reference, the only other players in NBA history with 900 or more 20-point games are Kobe Bryant (941) and Michael Jordan (926). Dirk Nowitzki (861), Shaquille O'Neal (826), Wilt Chamberlain (771), Dominique Wilkins (756) and Oscar Robertson (754) round out the top-10.
James is also making his way up another scoring list. Following Friday's performance, he now trails Bryant by 892 points for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Once again, Malone and Abdul-Jabbar are at the top of that list.
At his current pace, James will pass Bryant in scoring in 35 games.
