LeBron was 13-14 last night, placing him at a career high of his best one-game shooting percentage of 93%. That performance helped the Heat overtake the Bobcats 99-94.
“I didn’t plan it that way, I was just attacking when I could, got into the paint and was able to make some shots,” said James, who made nine shots from 2 feet or closer.
Chris Bosh added 23 points and Dwyane Wade had 20 points and a season-high 12 rebounds for Miami, which has won nine of its last 10 at home. The Heat improved to 19-3 on their home floor.
“I got a lot of my own misses, too. I was missing a lot of chippies, but I was just trying to be aggressive,” said Wade, who tied his career-high with six offensive boards. “When your shots aren’t falling you have to find some way to affect the basketball game and give your team a chance to win.”
His only miss was a 4-foot jumper late in the third quarter.
James also finished with eight rebounds and eight assists. It was the 67th time in LeBron’s career (including playoffs) that he’s put up at least 31, 8 and 8, according to STATS.
