It was quite an eventful night for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Philadelphia. Going against the lowly 76ers, LeBron’s Cavaliers fell behind by 15 points early in the second quarter before storming back and cruising to a 107-100 victory. In the process, James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point mark.
James is 30 years, 307 days old, and the previous mark was held by Kobe Bryant at 31 years, 151 days old. James reached the milestone on a lob from Matthew Dellavedova in the fourth quarter:

I guess his back wasn’t bothering him too much. James finished with 22 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds, four steals and two blocks. Not a bad day at the office. Mo Williams had 21 points, while Kevin Love had 15 points and eight rebounds.
The night wasn’t all fun and games, as Cavaliers starting shooting guard J.R. Smith left the game with a leg contusion.
