LeBron James was on fire last night and was scoring from all over the court. He made 22 of 30 shots from the field and made his first eight 3-point attempts. He was simply hitting everything from everywhere. Not only did LeBron set a career high in scoring, he also set a franchise record of most points field goals in a game, most points in a game, most points in a single quarter, and most points in the second half. One of the most amazing parts of his performance was his efficiency. He was able to put up 61 points on only 33 shots. After the Game LeBron James got a standing ovation from a sell out crowd and as he waved to the crowd the M-V-P chants rained down on him. This was a terrific game for LeBron but above all else, this was a statement game. He was making a statement to Kevin Durant and all else who has doubted him. Its not that Kevin Durant and LeBron have a rivalry, its that Durant is the closest to LeBron in terms skill. LeBron has proved that he his not ready to give away his MVP trophy and that Kevin Durant is going to have to earn it.
