In perhaps a warning to the rest of the NBA, LeBron James says he's finally entered his "comfort zone" with the Heat.

James said as much following a stellar performance against the Pacers on Tuesday night in which he had 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists.

"I'm in my zone, in a comfort zone where I've been the last two years," James told Sun Sports. "It took me a little while to get here, but I'm very comfortable with this team. I'm very comfortable with the sets, offensively and defensively.

"And I'm back to playing LeBron James basketball."

He is on pace for a career-high in double-doubles and is averaging a league-best 30.6 points since Jan. 1.

"He's playing MVP basketball right now," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "I don't even think that's debatable."
