Another game, another statistical milestone for LeBron James.

The four-time MVP moved ahead of Tim Duncan in the all-time playoff scoring ranking Wednesday night thanks to his 27 points vs. the Hawks and is now at No. 5 in NBA history with 5,163.

Until Wednesday, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal and Duncan were the only players in the Top 5 in three different major statistical categories in the postseason (points, rebounds and blocks). James now replaces the Spurs’ big man in the super exclusive list with a Top 5 ranking in scoring, assists and steals.

At just 31 and with a bunch of potential playoff runs in his future, James is very likely to finish at No. 1 all-time both in scoring and steals. The Cavs’ superstar could also enter the Top 10 in rebounds this season.
