LeBron James is 36 points away from breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scoring record.

The game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder won't be another ordinary regular season game.

Yes, the Lakers are hoping to get back into the win column after losing to the New Orleans Pelicans in the last outing, but the storyline heading into tomorrow's matchup will be LeBron James and his chase for the all-time scoring record held by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar which is 38,387.??

James is now 36 points away from breaking that historic milestone, and tomorrow's home game against the Thunder is a perfect stage for him to accomplish it. He is tagged as questionable but everyone expects him to suit up tomorrow as he makes history.

This season, LeBron has been nothing but spectacular. He's been posting averages of 30.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 7.1 assists while shooting almost 51 percent from the field. The same can't be said of the Lakers, though. LA is currently 13th in the West with a 25-29 record.

For fans of the Lakers, this momentous milestone in LeBron's career will definitely highlight this dismal season so far.

Become a witness and see LeBron break the all-time scoring record tomorrow live at 11:00 AM on NBA League Pass.
