The next player for James to pass will be six-time NBA Champion Scottie Pippen (2,307).
James entered the evening with averages of 25.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.6 steals per contest while shooting 57.2% from the field and 39.7% from the three-point range in 12 games.
The Lakers are the seventh seed in the Western Conference with a 7-6 record in their first 13 games, and most recently defeated the Portland Trail Blazers by a score of 107-95.
James remains one of the NBA's top ten players and will almost certainly play in his 20th straight All-Star Game. He is a four-time NBA Champion in his 21st season (his sixth with the Lakers).
