Tina Thompson now sits atop one of the WNBA’s most impressive lists.

Thompson, a nine-time all-star and two-time Olympic gold medalist, just scored her 6,264th career point to surpass Lisa Leslie as the league’s all-time leading scorer. She accomplished the feat with 5:01 left in the third quarter against the San Antonio Silver Stars.

The Sparks are currently tied for fourth place in the Western Conference with San Antonio and are only half a game behind Minnesota for third, with six games left in the season.
