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

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.
