Breaking records are always special, but breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s is even more so. That’s what Dirk Nowitzki was able to do on Monday night when he scored and passed Wilt’s points scored total, taking him to sixth place on the list.

He had been number six in the past, but LeBron James surpassed him and made him accomplish the feat all over again. He finished with eight points in just 12 minutes of action as the Mavericks lost 129-125 to the New Orleans Pelicans in Dallas.
