AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit's Ben Gordon has scored the 10 millionth point in NBA history.

Gordon made a jumper with 3:51 left in the second quarter of the Pistons' game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night for the milestone point.

The first NBA points were scored by New York's Ossie Schectman on Nov. 1, 1946, at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens.
