Lebron James stunned the crowd with his record 61points against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday Night, making it his career high and Miami Heat record. With 61 points from James, the Miami Heat defeated the Bobcats 124-107.

The two time defending NBA champions attained their eighth straight win as they make their way to the playoffs. The player is still wearing a plastic mask because his nose was injured during the match against Oklahoma City Thunder just last week.

Up until this game, James’s career best score was 56 points that he had attained on March 20, 2005, for Cleveland against Toronto. He made 22 of the 33 shots from the field with the first eight being three point attempts in the game.

At half time, James had managed to make 24 points. In the third quarter, he scored 25 more points.

"The man above has given me some unbelievable abilities to play the game of basketball," James said. "I just try to take advantage of it every night. I got the trust of my team-mates and my coaching staff to go in there and let it go."

"There was an efficiency to what he was doing. The rim looked like an ocean for him," said coach of the Miami Heat, Erik Spoelstra.

In the conference after the game, the coach admitted that he was close to taking James out of the game for the third quarter. The good thing for the team was that he continued playing.

The Bobcats star, Al Jefferson, also attained 38 points with 19 rebounds. His accomplishments are not that great compared to the show that James put for everyone. He said that even if you take away the 61 points, the team still had a fighting chance.

James is picking up pace in the Most Valuable Player race with Kevin Durrant. In the entire league, James and Durrant have had the best season of their careers.

Surely, one night’s performance might not make him the pick for the MVP award but his performance was most definitely historic. The 61 points by James are the most field goals made in a game. They are the most points in any quarter in history of Miami Heat team and the most points ever made in the second half by a Heat player.

When James checked out, the entire crowd gave the player a standing ovation and chanted "M-V-P" as he waved to the crowd.
