 CLEVELAND - LeBron James continued to make his mark on the record books Tuesday as he passed former teammate Ray Allen for No. 21 on the NBA's all-time scoring list in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 110-79 win over the Boston Celtics.

James' fast-break layup off a Kyrie Irving assist with 7:49 remaining in the third quarter gave him 25 points for the game, putting him one point ahead of Allen's 24,505-point career total.

"I didn't know until I came to the bench and the guys congratulated me and I was like, 'For what? For making a layup?' They go, 'You passed Ray Allen,'" James recalled after the game. "That's one of my best friends. That's a guy that I competed against, I grew up watching and then to be able to team with him the last two years when I was in Miami, I learned so much from him about work ethic, about being a professional and it just added on to my game. To know that I passed him tonight, it's very humbling. I guess I've done some pretty good things in this league so far."

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson was thrilled when the Charlotte Hornets traded for Mo Williams -- and not only because they're best friends.
