Kobe Bryant entered the game against the Pistons Tuesday night needing 15 points to surpass hall-of-fame player Dominique Wilkins for the 10th spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring leader list.
Kobe moved past Wilkins at the 6:45 mark of the third quarter on a driving floater down the lane. Kobe finished the game with 17 points on the night which puts him currently at 26,671 career points.
