Video: LeBron James Scored A Career-Best 61 Points Last Night

LeBron James scored 61 points in Miami Heat's 124-107 victory of the Charlotte Bobcats last night - beating his previous single-game points record of 56, achieved for Cleveland back in 2005. Of his phenomenal haul last night, he landed 22 of 33 shots and eight out of 10 three-point attempts.

He also beat the Heat's franchise record of 56, set by Glen Rice in 1995, and increased his season's points average by nearly one point per game.

He compared the ease of his scoring to having "a golf ball (and) throwing it in the ocean". His exploits last night are still short of Wilt Chamberlain's NBA record of 100 points in a single game, set back in 1962, and is unlikely to be beaten any tome soon - a bit like the other, far less official NBA record. Either Wilt was just that good, or the 1960s was a less defensively taxing era, because he dropped 60 in a game on 32 separate occasions.
