DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki has moved past Reggie Miller on the NBA scoring list.
Nowitzki made a free throw after a technical foul was called against Houston's Dwight Howard on Wednesday night to reach 25,280 points and take over 15th place.
Miller, the second-most prolific 3-point shooter behind Ray Allen, scored 25,279 points in 18 seasons with Indiana from 1987 to 2005.
The 35-year-old Nowitzki is in his 16th season with the Mavericks. He is the franchise leader in every major offensive category.
Brooklyn's Kevin Garnett is 14th at 25,340 points after scoring four in a 95-91 loss to Charlotte on Wednesday night.
Nowitzki passed Jerry West for 16th place on Nov. 12 against Washington.
