CLEVELAND (AP) -LeBron James is Cleveland's scoring king.
The All-Star forward passed Brad Daugherty as the Cavaliers' career scoring leader during the first quarter of Friday night's game against the Toronto Raptors. James entered the game needing five points to surpass Daugherty, and did it with one of his patented driving layups with 4:10 left in the period.
It took Daugherty 548 games to score 10,389 points while James, the NBA's leading scorer in his fifth pro season, was playing in just his 380th game.
