CLEVELAND, March 21 (UPI) -- LeBron James became Cleveland's all-time leading scorer Friday when he scored 29 points to pace the Cavaliers past Toronto 90-83.

James ran his NBA career total to 10,414, passing Brad Daugherty to take over the top spot on the franchise's all-time points list. Daugherty scored 10,390 points in 548 games with Cleveland. James needed only 380 games to reach that total.

Toronto was led by Chris Bosh with 24 points. The Raptors have dropped six out of seven.

Cleveland trailed by four entering the fourth period, but took the lead for good at 79-77 on a layup by Joe Smith.
