The Cleveland Cavaliers forward is likely to add to his total scoring output with a few more games remaining on their schedule.
James also took sole possession of third place in career 20-point games with 942, moving ahead of Bryant (941) by a game. He only trails Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,122) and Karl Malone (1,134) on the all-time career list.
LeBron James now has 942 career 20-point games (3rd most all-time), passing Kobe Bryant who had 941.

Bleacher Report’s Tyler Conway observed that “James has played 207 fewer games in his career than Bryant, who retired following the 2015-16 season.”
Bryant played for 20 seasons in a Lakers uniform while James is in his 15th season having played for the Cavaliers and Miami Heat.
