“It was against Charlotte though.”
It doesn’t matter. The Bobcats put five professional ballplayers on the court each game, just like every other team in the league. The fact that their record sucks doesn’t negate LeBron putting up 31 points on 13-of-14 shooting from the floor. He also knocked down five of his six free throws and added eight rebounds, eight assists plus two steals. According to AP writer Tim Reynolds, “There have been six instances this season of an NBA player putting up at least 31, 8 and 8. LeBron has five of them.”
The only shot he missed from the floor? It looked like he got fouled, but who’s keeping track.
