The 38-year-old LeBron went off against the Rockets, finishing with 37 points, six rebounds and eight assists while shooting 14-of-19 from the field, 2-of-5 from 3 and 7-of-9 from the free-throw line.

“I have been able to be on the court a lot more during off days this year because of past injuries the last couple years with my foot or whatever the case may be,” LeBron told ESPN. “So to be able to hone in on everything that I need to do instead of having to get off my foot, unless we’re playing games has allowed me to stay in rhythm. I got my bounce back, my spring back, my quick twitch back and things of that nature.”

LeBron is averaging 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.5 assists on the season for the Lakers. He’s shooting 58.6% from the field, 39.7% from beyond the arc and 69.1% from the free-throw line. LeBron is still one of the top players in the NBA despite being the oldest player in the league.

“Just trying to push the limit,” LeBron said. “See how far I can take this thing. I don’t know. I mean, it’s me vs. Father Time.”
