LeBron James - the four-time NBA MVP - provided a timely reminder of his supreme quality on Wednesday night, just in time for the 63rd All-Star game in New Orleans this weekend.

James, who will make his 11th All-Star berth as an Eastern Conference starter on Sunday night in the Big Easy, finished agonisingly short of a triple-double at Oracle Arena with 36 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists as the Miami Heat edged the Golden State Warriors 111-110 in a Californian thriller.

As well as lighting up the stats sheet, it was 29-year-old James who made sure of the victory late on.

With around 13 seconds left on the clock and Miami down 110-108, point guard Mario Chalmers brought the ball down the floor.

After surveying his options, Chalmers quickly offloaded the ball to James who was being tightly guarded just beyond the perimeter.

Rather than try to work the ball inside for a bucket that would pull the Heat level and send the game into overtime, James fearlessly heaved up a three-pointer that put his team up by one with just 0.1 seconds left on the clock.
