SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Kobe Bryant has passed fellow Los Angeles Lakers great Wilt Chamberlain for fourth place on the NBA's career scoring list.

Bryant made a pull-up jumper from the free throw line with 7:54 remaining in the second quarter to eclipse Chamberlain's mark of 31,419 points. He tied Chamberlain 22 seconds earlier with a layup.

Bryant entered the game four points behind Chamberlain.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tops the NBA's career scoring list with 38,387 points, Karl Malone is second with 36,928 and Michael Jordan is third with 32,292.

The 34-year-old Bryant is in his 17th season — all with the Lakers.
