(CNN)LeBron James reached a career milestone Thursday as he passed 35,000 points, making him the third and youngest NBA player to do so after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone.

James ended the Los Angeles Lakers' 109-98 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on 35,017 points -- 1,911 behind Malone and 3,370 behind fellow Laker legend Abdul-Jabbar.

The Lakers were without Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder in Thursday's game, which saw the Nets secure their fifth straight victory despite James contributing 32 points and seven assists.

James Harden finished the night with 23 points and 11 assists for the Nets, while Joe Harris scored 21 points.

"For me to be linked with some of the greatest to have played this game is an honor," James told reporters after the game.

James also learned Thursday that he will play in his 17th All-Star Game on March 7, the third most in history after Abdul-Jabbar's 19 and Kobe Bryant's 18.
