The records keep tumbling for LeBron James!

With a deep three-pointer in the second quarter against the Indiana Pacers, LeBron became just the fifth player in NBA history to reach 32,000 career points.

He entered the game needing just 10 points to reach the milestone, finishing the first half with 13 and is now the youngest player in NBA history to reach 32,000 career points at 34 years and 37 days old.

He trails only Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list.

James missed 17 games with a groin injury, returning against the Los Angeles Clippers last week, before sitting out the Lakers' last game against the Golden State Warriors due to 'load management'.

The 34-year-old was averaging 27.2 points, 7.2 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game heading into today's game.
