LeBron James scores career-high 61 points on Monday

This just in: LeBron James is good.

Of course, he's more than just "good," but King James scored a career-high (and franchise-record) 61 points against the Bobcats on Monday night.

Coincidentally, the Bobcats have allowed both games this season where a player has scored 60-plus points.  New York's Carmelo Anthony scored 62 against them in January.

While James took 33 shots, he was incredibly efficient as he converted on 22 of them.  In addition, he connected on eight of his 10 three-point attempts.

In addition to scoring 61, LeBron added seven rebounds and five assists.  (If you remember, Melo had no assists in his 62-point game.)

It was the 10th time that James has scored at least 50 points in a game, but it was only the second time that he has done so as a member of the Miami Heat.

On the season, James is averaging 27.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.5 steals per game and is shooting 58.3 percent from the field.
