Just when we thought he could not get any better, LeBron James surprised us.
In last night’s contest against the Washington Wizards, James totaled 57 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks.
“This is the best I’ve felt in my career right now,” James said after the game.
The Cavaliers went on to win 130-122, snapping the four-game losing streak they had coming into the game.
While this was one one of the highest scoring games in James career, he fell short of his career high of 61 which he posted when he was on the Miami Heat in 2014.
James has canvassed come pretty amazing performances over his career. Of the 10 games he finished with more than 50 points, James averaged five three pointers. This game, however, he only had two; it was a constant, relentless attack on the basket for the duration.
“As I’ve grown as a basketball player,” James said. “I’m staying disciplined with my shot, disciplined with my balance and every shot that I took it feels like it was going in.”
Considering where James is at in his career, this achievement and play is special.
