The NBA made this list and, after checking it twice, we know Dwyane Wade moved past Shaquille O'Neal into third place on the NBA's all-time Christmas scoring list in Friday's 94-88 overtime victory against the Pelicans.

He finished the holiday game with 19 points, bringing his career total on Dec. 25 to 277, after passing Shaq (272) with a jumper in overtime.

Not only is Wade, 33, a scorer on Christmas, he's a winner, too. With Friday's victory, he is 10-1 on Christmas.

Wade has a ways to go to catch the Nos. 1 and 2 scorers on Christmas: No. 1 Kobe Bryant, who with 12 points Friday finishes his career with 395 on the holiday, and No. 2 Oscar Robertson, who despite playing before the advent of the 3-point shot dropped in 377 on Dec. 25.

Wade also ranks among the top five all-time in Christmas assists (70) and steals (19).
