MIAMI (AP) -- Heat forward Mike Miller is the 48th active player with at least 10,000 points in his NBA career.
Miller reached the milestone with a 3-pointer with 10:25 left in the second quarter on Tuesday, when Miami hosted Oklahoma City in a rematch of last season's NBA Finals.
Miller entered the game only one point shy of the mark. He's the second former Florida player to score 10,000 points, according to STATS LLC, and the 313th player in NBA history to reach that total.
The Heat have six players with at least 10,000 points, with Miller joining Ray Allen, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Rashard Lewis and Chris Bosh. Only one other NBA team - the Los Angeles Lakers - have six 10,000-point scorers on their roster.
