Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Ray Allen have scoring milestones coming

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Three future Hall of Famers are climbing up the all-time scoring list.

Kobe Bryant passed Wilt Chamberlain for fourth on the NBA's all-time leading scorer list Saturday, but he won't be the only current player to move up on the list as the season winds down.

Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics, Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs and Ray Allen of the Miami Heat should all move up by the time the season is over.

Garnett needs 43 points over Boston's final ten games to move past Reggie Miller and into 14th place all time. Garnett is currently averaging 14.9 points per game, but he has missed the last four games with an ankle injury. He's expected to return before the season ends.

Allen and Duncan, who are currently 22nd and 23rd all time, could both move up a spot by passing Charles Barkley. Allen, who averages 10.7 points per game, needs 69 points in his final ten games to pass Barkley. Duncan, averaging 17.6 points per game, needs 124 points to pass Barkley.
