PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cleveland’s LeBron James moved into 10th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Hall-of-Famer Hakeem Olajuwon by converting a fastbreak layup with 6 minutes, 2 seconds left in the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

Olajuwon finished his career with 26,946 points.

James’ first attempt at passing the record was an emphatic block by Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid 3:20 into the contest. After two more misses, James quickly raced up the court for an easy layup.
