James made an and-one layup with 3:52 left in the first quarter off a dish from Matthew Dellavedova to get him over 26,668 points and to 12th on the scoring list.
James, a 4-time NBA MVP, finished with 24 points, 11 assists, and 4 rebounds for the game as the Cavaliers won 107-87 to improve to 53-22 this season.
