Article Summary:

With his point production against the Brooklyn Nets, James passed Kobe Bryant to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer on Christmas.

Bryant scored 395 total points in 16 career Christmas games. Not only did he lead all scorers with 36 points, but he absolutely dominated the second half and helped lead the Bucks to a comeback win over the Celtics.

As the Suns employed the familiar defensive strategy of selling out to contain Curry, Otto Porter, who is looking like one of the league’s better low-level offseason pickups, put the finishing touches on this win for the Warriors, scoring 13 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, including 10 in the final five minutes and the game’s final seven points.
