LeBron James was scoring wherever he wanted against Charlotte — the seventh best defense in the NBA this season — he was 10-of-12 at the rim, 7-of-8 from three from the left side of the floor.
Here are all 61 of his points. Watch him get going early and he just could not miss, he had 11 points in the first quarter, 13 in the second, then he exploded for 25 in the third which is when Miami pulled away, leading by 23 in the quarter and pulling away for the win.
The rest of the teams may petition the league to make LeBron take the mask off from here on out.
