Kobe Bryant moving up in the record books

January 6, 2010 |  7:00 am

Though it was far from his best performance, Kobe Bryant's 22 points in the Lakers' 88-79 victory over the Houston Rockets moved his total past Patrick Ewing for 15th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

With 24,837 points, Bryant likely will move up in the record books fairly soon. He is 355 points behind Jerry West, who also holds the Lakers' all-time record with 25,192 points. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, another Lakers great, is on top of the list with 38,387 points.

So how many games will it take for Bryant to surpass West's place in the record books? Will Bryant be on the top of the list by the end of his career?
