LeBron James had 25 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds and made NBA history in the Miami Heat’s 92-75 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

With his offensive output, James has amassed 20,007 career points, making him
the youngest player to reach that mark at 28 years, 17 days old. Kobe Bryant
previously held the record at 29 years, 122 days old.

He became the 38th player to accomplish the feat, but by doing it in his 726th
regular-season game he did not reach the milestone the fastest. Wilt
Chamberlain holds that record by doing it in just 499 games.

Dwyane Wade contributed 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the
Heat, who have won two of their last three.

Mario Chalmers added 15 points, Chris Bosh finished with 11 and Ray Allen
dropped in 10 in the victory.

Jarrett Jack netted 16 points to pace Golden State, which dropped its second
straight and four of five overall.

David Lee finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds in defeat.
