Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony continued his rise up the NBA’s all-time scoring leaderboard with another 20-point performance on Tuesday. Thanks to his 23-point outing against the Magic, Melo passed NBA legend Oscar Robertson to move up to No. 12 on the scoring list.

Melo, who has notched at least 20 points in three out of his last four games, now trails Hakeem Olajuwon on the NBA’s scoring leaderboard. Currently, Olajuwon owns a modest 224-point advantage over Melo.

On the season, the former Knicks star is averaging 12.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. Melo and the Trail Blazers return to action tomorrow with a matchup against the 76ers.
