LeBron James continues to chase - and catch - greatness.

With a layup Sunday in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers icon notched his 2,189th career playoff field goal to pass Michael Jordan for the second-most in NBA history.

The only man standing in James' way for the top spot is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

James has overtaken many of Jordan's records, especially those relating to the postseason, as he's played so many more games and minutes.

G MP FG 3FG FT REB AST STL BLK PTS
Jordan 179 7474 2188 148 1463 1152 1022 376 158 5987
James 217 9127 2189 331 1478 1932 1501 390 210 6187

With that said, MJ has six championship rings, to James' three (and counting).

James finished with his 20th career playoff triple-double of 24 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as Cleveland dropped its first-round series opener at home, 98-80. The loss snapped a personal 21-game first-round winning streak for the four-time MVP.
