Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James: I'm in the zone, I don't plan on stopping

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James says he is in one of the best zones offensively he has been in his career as he has suggested he will continue to be aggressive when Anthony Davis returns. On Sunday, James scored 33 points but it wasn't enough as the Miami Heat beat the Lakers 113-107.

James has now scored 25 or more points in 17 consecutive games. "I don't need to score 30 a night, but I'm in one of the best zones offensively I've been in, in my career," James said, per ESPN. "And I don't plan on stopping.

That's just how I feel. I feel fantastic. Shooting the ball extremely well. Didn't shoot the 3-ball well tonight, but all eight of them felt great. Shooting efficient from the free throw line, shooting efficient from the field. Very efficient at the rim.

"So I don't go into the game saying you got to score 30 or you guys don't have a chance to win the game. I just play the game. The scoring has been happening organically."

James close to reaching another milestone

James is just 2,006 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record atop the all-time scoring list.

"As I've continued to climb the ranks, it's natural, human to look at it and see where you are and see if it's even possible. See if you're capable," James said. "Obviously health plays the most important part and then just continuing to give your everything to the game.

I've never cheated the game. I've never wanted to feel like I was content. "I wanted to continue to get better and I mean, I am, like you said, I will be within 2,000 points, when did you say? Soon? Well, listen, we'll see what happens.

I've never chased a record in my life. I've never sat down and said, 'OK, let me see if I can get this record, let me see if I can get that record.' "
