LeBron James produced another outstanding performance to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a win on Saturday as they beat the Utah Jazz 109-100. 

The King is having arguably the best season of his career and he posted his second consecutive triple-double and the third in his last four games with 29 points, 10 assists, and 11 rebounds to dispatch the men from Salt Lake City. 

This saw him surpass Hall of Famer Larry Bird and move to sixth on the NBA's all-time triple-doubles list with 60. 

The four-time MVP was dominant once again on the court and Utah had absolutely no answer for him as he controlled the game. He produced another efficient display as he shot 9-of-15 from the field. 

LBJ was also able to put on a show for the Cavs fans inside Quicken Loans Arena as he enjoyed some incredible highlight plays. 

The best of them certainly came in the first quarter as he somehow managed to finish an errant alley-oop pass from Jeff Green with his left hand. 

The feed was a little off target but King James still managed to get up and throw it down impressively despite almost hitting his head on the side of the backboard. 

The 32-year-old even managed to amaze himself with that play as he paused momentarily and stared at his left hand. 

He even managed to joke about it after the game as he posted a picture of himself in the air about to catch the lob on Instagram.

For the season, the three-time champion is averaging career-highs of 28.1 points, 9.1 assists and 8.4 rebounds as well as shooting a career-best 57.9 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from three-point range. 

With the way he's performing at the moment he is certainly a leading candidate for the MVP award again this year. 

Not many players can perform at this level in their 15th season and the small forward appears to be defying the odds as he's somehow getting better as he gets older.

"I feel good. I mean, this is my 15th year, but this is one of the best years I've had as far as how I feel and I want to continue that," James said, per ESPN. I want to kind of try to break the mold just for the next generation, just take the narrative out of, `You're past your prime when you hit 31,' or `You're past your prime in your 12th year in the league,' or whatever the case may be."

After a 5-7 start, the Cavaliers have won 17 of their last 18 games and that's largely thanks to the brilliance of LeBron. 

The Wine and Gold are in action again tonight in a back-to-back as they take on the Washington Wizards on the road.
