LeBron James says he’s playing at an ‘all-time high’ after late-game heroics vs. Nuggets

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) dribbles the ball up court in the fourth quarter against the Denver Nuggets.

LeBron James did what LeBron James does Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets, willing his Cleveland Cavaliers to a 113-108 win with an epic late-game performance.

He finished with 39 points, including Cleveland’s last nine, to go along with 10 assists and eight rebounds.

He’s averaging a triple-double — 29.3 points, 10.5 assists and 10 rebounds — since Cleveland’s Feb. 8 trade-deadline roster overhaul.

Asked after the win to describe where his game is right now?

“Probably at an all-time high,” James said on the ESPN broadcast. “Just because of my body, my mind, the way I go out and approach the game. Just the grace of God giving me the ability to do this. I’m blessed and I never take it for granted.”.

The Cavs hold sole possession of third place in the wild Eastern Conference playoff race, 1 ½ games ahead of the Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers. Boston (6 ½ games ahead of Cleveland) and Toronto (nine games ahead) are essentially out of reach, but the rest of the conference is competitive as can be.

Be that as it may, James says he isn’t focused on playoff seeding.

“It doesn’t matter to me if I’m a six seed or a three seed or a two seed, eight seed.” James told reporters in Denver. “If I come into your building for a Game 1, it will be very challenging.”.
