Watch: LeBron James receives technical after monster dunk vs Knicks

LeBron James was in relentless form on Saturday night as he torched the New York Knicks for 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

And, if one moment summed up the four-time NBA MVP's dominance on the night, it came in the final few seconds of the third quarter at Madison Square Garden.

Ball in hand outside the arc and faced up by New York's Lou Amundson, LeBron surged past the veteran, and made light work of rookie Kristaps Porzingis too, as he produced a monster dunk. James wasn't done there though, his reaction to the dunk earning him a technical foul from officials.

If Amundson didn't already know James meant business, the Cavs star's post-dunk stance made it pretty clear:

James and Amundson were actually teammates in Cleveland last season. Clearly any pleasantries were saved for after the game.

Stepping up

As noted earlier, the dunk, and reaction, were part of a big night on the hardwood for James as he racked up his third triple-double of the season.

It was, though, also endemic of the 'playoff mode' LeBron that has been in evidence over recent games.

James has scored at least 26 points in each of his last five games and his second triple-double of the campaign came just six days ago in a 31-11-11 performance against Denver.

There is no doubt that the future Hall of Famer is in the zone right now and that is a scary proposition for upcoming opponents.
