MIAMI - NBA superstar LeBron James has scored a career-high 61 points, breaking the Miami Heat's one-game scoring record, as he sparked the defending champions to a 124-107 win over the Charlotte Bobcats.

James sank eight 3-pointers, hitting 22-of-33 shots from the field overall, and also grabbed seven rebounds and passed off five assists in the home game.

The previous Heat single-game scoring record was 56 points by Glen Rice in April, 1995.

The Heat stretched their winning streak to eight games with a 16th consecutive victory in meetings with Charlotte, whose win drought against Miami now spans four years.

On a night when Miami star guard Dwyane Wade was rested, Chris Bosh contributed 15 points and seven rebounds.

Miami shot 55.4 per cent from the floor, including 16-of-28 from 3-point range.

Charlotte's Al Jefferson scored 38 points and grabbed 19 rebounds.

The Heat improved to 43-14, trailing only Eastern Conference rival Indiana (46-13) for the best record in the NBA and a home-court edge throughout the play-offs.
