LeBron James put on the best show of his NBA life Monday night, scoring 61 points- a career high and a Heat franchise record, as the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 124-107. It is the second-highest individual scoring game of the season, behind Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony's 62 point game.

The four time MVP made 22 of 33 shots from the field, including 8-for-10 from three points range and 9-for-12 from the free throw line. His career best had been 56 points on March 20, 2005 for Cleveland againist Toronto.

"The man above has given me some unbelievable abilities to play the game of basketball," James told Sun Sports in a postgame interview. "I just try to take advantage of it every night. I've got the trust of my teammates and my coaching staff to go in there and let it go."
